It was a cute trail but nothing very diverse about it. Easy path to walk but watch out for the cacti

Nice easy loop (even for kids) especially when it’s getting hot in the summer. Can def get crowded.

I'm a man in his late 20s, physically in shape, not super athletic. Enjoy tough hikes. This "hike" was very easy and enjoyable. The dam is neat to see in the middle of the desert.

This is the first place we stopped in JT. Immediately started foot climbing up the rocks (no gear) like children. Most fun I had in years! Highly recommended

Easy hiking trail with stunning view of rocks.

It’s ok. Honestly there’s much better trails in JT to explore. Great for families or a quick short hike.

this hike was magical amazing rocks and the pond gives it an extra touch. I should came earlier to enjoyed more of this magical spot.

Fun warm up and first time hike if you’ve never visited JT. If you ever get to see the dam with water it’s pretty amazing. The early morning reflections off the water is worth the short hike.

Leisurely hike. Sand portion can be slow to walk through. Lower area of trail has a lot of bugs. Vista view is beautiful. Not a crowded trail.

A good hike but did not see mine as shown in the other photos of this trail, must be a bit off the path. Good rocks for a leisurely climb.

Interesting to see the mill and car hulls along with the shootout plaque. A fun, learning experience as well as refreshing hike. Not too heavily trafficked.

made it halfway cuz it was too hot. beautiful. carrying 2 kids!! amazing trees

Easy Hike to the Dam. Water is dirty dont think you getting in. Nature is great around here and cactus during this time of year is mind blowing how beautiful it is. Hike is marked the whole way not easy to get lost. Good for all ages just make sure to have plenty of Water on you to stay hydrated.

Amazing views once on Panorama Loop. Mostly flat (and sandy) hike but right before you get on Panorama Loop there is a short set of some relatively steep switchbacks.

Trail is very rocky when hiring mountains. You can make it with any lifted 4 wheel drive. But is a little nerve racking

this trail was a little too crowded for my taste, but a worthwhile hike nonetheless. it's pretty much totally flat and brings you past some really cool attractions including petroglyphs and a dam that looks particularly great when the water is flat enough to reflect the rocks.

perfect spot for watching the sunset! the sun made the cholla look suuuper velvelty, totally sick. super short, fully flat, and a great spot for some low desert nature photography (not too much of a hike though).

I loved this hike! We did it in the late afternoon and it wasn't too hot or very crowded at all. We saw a bunch of vultures flying overhead by the oasis at the start and some metates! The hike is rated moderate by the J Tree guides, but I didn't find it very strenuous at all. It's definitely worth your time to scramble up the craggy boulder peak at the top. Also, the wildflowers along the trail were PRIME. A great first hike of our trip in J Tree :)

Great hike through the great flora of Joshua Tree. Some good views atop the ridgeline as well.

easy stroll around rocks and boulders, we saw people rock climbing as we walked by! My kids and I climbed some rocks and they loved it! My son saw a snake as we walked on the trail!
