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).

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.

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! :)

This hike was great. Keep an eye on the map though it’s easy to go off trail.

South leg of loop is very uneven and eroded, little shade anywhere. Otherwise quite easy and beautiful.

Hands down best trial in Joshua Tree if you go when the lake is full of water. There are also petroglyphs- but it’s really all about that lake and those boulders. Nice loop

Short hikes, beautiful rock formations.

Loved this trail. My six year old easily followed along. It had a few rocky climbs but nothing too difficult. In May the dam looks gorgeous. It was low enough and hot enough to create some green algae on the shoreline. There are some shady areas to rest along the way. Cool flat boulders to climb for added interest for my son. At a slow (ungodly slow) pace we finished the loop in 90 min.

did loop clockwise and then up to warren peak. Great views throughout, I would rate it moderate rather than hard.

Great hike. Not many people and the trail was clear.

Easy flat trail with large boulders and rocks right off trail. Good for a nice stroll.

Beautiful Joshua trees and other desert life. Pretty flat hike towards the rocky hills that have shade trees for a picnic lunch. Trail is usually lightly populated… Always a plus

Was a good hike. Took me about an hour and a half with me taking a few stops to take in the views. Would do it again

Gorgeous trail, anyone can do it.

Fun, easy trail. Absolutely incredible spot in the park, very unique rock formations and plant life, as well as cool pictographs. The dam and the history of the dam was very interesting too.

Enjoyable hike with decent views. Best views are only during a short duration of the hike. Wide and easily navigated trail.

This is a lovely trail in March, with few hikers, excellent views, and plenty of unusual plants to look at.
