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

This hike is close to the jumbo rocks campground which is super convenient. There is no shade but awesome rocks to climb and take photos including the famous one that looks like a ‘skull’ (if you have the right angle it looks like a skull).

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.

Nice Hike with pretty views. I hiked clockwise but plan on doing counter clockwise next time to get a different feel.

Hiked this morning to the oasis, took about 2 hours total including a long break to enjoy the shade at the oasis. Good views at the peak and plenty of wildlife, even saw a couple chuckwallas. It’s an easy hike when it’s not too hot out, recommend doing it in the morning this time of year.

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!

This trail is gorgeous and great. I would recommend doing the trail clockwise and getting the hard part out of the way at the beginning! :)

Fun trail. I went clockwise and I’m happy I did because the boulder house is towards the end of the hike. At parts the trail is hard to follow, make sure you have a power source to charge your phone if you are using the app to stay on track. Saw a rattlesnake, first on of the year, it was in the middle of a wash getting some sun. I didn’t see it at first but it warned be before I got close. Lots of other critters around too. Still some wildflowers in bloom too.

Fun hike. I did it as part of the Luckie Boy Vista Loop hike. Boulder house is really neat.
