Really gorgeous trail and the oasis is a beautiful contrast to the surrounding rock. Be careful where you step, I was almost bit by a red diamond rattlesnake near the oasis this morning.

The trail was well marked. The rock formations were cool and the dam was nice. I loved the petroglyphs you could see on a big rock. 10/10 would recommend!

Went around 6pm and it was perfect it wasnt too hot and climbing the rocks was fun. Definitely will be coming back again with my family it wasn’t hard at all and very short hike.

Nice wide trail with a challenging incline. We took the panoramic loop counter clockwise and it was stunning! There were some flies but nothing horrible. Do be aware that there are tarantula hawks on the trail!! You’ll know them when you see them!

Beautiful! Easy to follow plus many lizard friends!

Nice little walk that offers some differing landscape. Definitely try to hike earlier in the day because there isn't any shade. Prettier than expected.

Easy and flat nature walk.

Nice and easy hike with some rock formations and Joshua trees. The dam was neat to see in the desert.

Nothing too exciting but a nice little pit stop to stretch your legs and see a unique rock formation.

A definite must see in Joshua Tree! Just a simple walk but it's an experience like no other.

Easy walk with nice views! Offers something a bit different than the rest of the park.

It took us a bit of time to find arch rock due to not having cell reception in the park, so make sure you download the map or know where you’re going prior, but it’s well worth it! And once we knew where to go it was very easy to get to, just not really many signs for it until you get to the site. Luckily that meant it was quiet and we didn’t have to fight crowds. We didn’t actually hike the loop; just went to the rock, but even that is nice.

Beautiful, easy trail. Didnt expect it to be as pretty as it was. Lots of scrambling and rock climbing opportunities.

Pretty views all around once at the top. Moderate difficulty, moreso in the ascent

Recommend taking this trail starting at dawn to reduce exposure to high heat. The hills, rocks, and trees provide shade as the sun is rising. The section of trail leading to the panorama loop is easy. Took the recommendations of others, taking the trail clockwise because some of the switchbacks are steep and loose on the loop. Lots of bees that didn’t pay me any mind. Hares hopping around at the top. Great views!

Super easy, no shade and also there wasn't actually water at the end due to the season heat.

Nice trail.

First time in Joshua tree! Beautiful scenery !! Saw a couple bunnies and a coyote! Hiking shoes definitely helped to climb the rocks a little off path.

So you have an option to just dive on Park Blvd and arrive at Skull Rock, But if you do you are missing out on a great Trail! We parked at the Jumbo Rocks campground - The trail is so beautiful. So much to see - The Skulls Rocks get pretty busy and odds are you will only get a few minutes while you wait for the crowd to give you space. However the trail has some amazing and beautiful rock formations that the kids (and I) loved to explore.

Great trail. Nice and short. Definitely go either early morning or evening. The oasis is cool but nothing incredible. The views from the ridges are awesome, especially during sunset.
