The first half is the La Madre Springs hike and the springs kinda mark the half way point. at the springs there are a crazy amount of Dragonfly and Bees along with various wasps; be careful of the Tarantula Hawk, it has the second most painful insect sting right below the Bullet Ant.

Past the springs foliage is amazing and you almost forget you are in the middle of the Mojave: Pine, Juniper and reeds to name a few. The trail gets a little hard to follow here and there and it crosses the stream that feeds the spring a few times.

Things get a little steep as you get to the "Miner's Cabin" but it is worth getting there as the view is amazing.

If you want to find the mines above the cabin, things get a little rough and steep: one of the mines is about 40 feet horizontal and the other one descends into the ground, so I did not explore it. I think the mines are worth seeing but it did take me a few tries to find them.

Around one of the mines, I found a stone with a fossil in it.

I take about 2 liters of water with me when I go.

Super easy hike for all skill levels. We took the dogs and they enjoyed climbing the rocky steps. There was a small trickle water fall this morning. Beautiful views of wild flowers and lots of shady spots to hang out

Loved it. Beautiful.

This trail was 2 hours of rough road 10mph driving then I finally got to put it in 4wd on a big climb just to find a 4 ft ledge at the top that was impassable for my 4 door JK rubicon with a 4 inch lift and 35s. If you like to be beaten and not be able to finish then this one is for you

A longer hike on foot, but very enjoyable nonetheless. The views are amazing, though the trail itself is less than glamorous. It has a bit of climbing that was hard on my companion's knees and has little shade, so bring water.

Very easy hike and short. The Waterfall is nice and the cave at the end of the trail. My daughter and her friends had a really great time. good for kida and pet

Loved the ease of this trail. Hiked to Lost Creek waterfall.

Great trail! Good for kids. The sand makes it slippery, so shoes with good traction are recommended. In the spring you can see the waterfall the best, because the snow is melting. There are rock steps as you get closer to the waterfall and the trail is not well marked at the bottom, but you want to head straight toward the mountain and then the trail is obvious.

We hiked this trail at the end of March and was surprise by the water and waterfall.

A pleasant little stroll that leads to a unique waterfall. Well worth getting a little wet on a rainy day. If you are a bit adventurous, and have some climbing gear, you can find a hidden gem just out of reach of the casual trekker.

Easy walk. A bit of rocky rubble, but worthwhile. Views are incredible all throughout. Lots of wildlife to espy.

Beautiful views and more on the easier side.

Great trail till the 75% thru trail washed need serious off-road to finish had to turn around

The way around the hill is hard to find and wilderness
I do not recommend

If you're looking for an easy Hike - This is it!. It pretty much goes straight no uphills or elevation plus the view is wide open and beautiful. My husband and I got so lucky to see some deer (nice treat). However, hiking boots would help a lot since the trail isn't just sand if not there's rocks everywhere and wearing normal shoes or sneakers would be quite uncomfortable. Therefore, worth it.

A very nice little off road trail. Sometimes you get to see wildlife. Some parts look intimidating but are really not that hard.

It’s not until the last few miles that this trail gets intense. No bald tires. Watch sidewalls. Gorgeous views! Going back soon.

Tougher than it looks for novices. Elevation rises and tough on the way up but beautiful views and desert scape.

Trails are a little confusing, but all trails in the area are beautiful! No waterfall when we were there (January 2018) but the trees and rocks creates scenic view.

On the easy side of moderate. Trail was in great shape. Easy to traverse. Elevation gains were not taxing. Did it clockwise. I think scenery would be better counterclockwise.

Lots of people, always. Beautiful scenery makes up for it. Much of the trail is poorly marked in places so you can get a little turned around.

Beautiful trail! Loved the easiness of it. Wished it looped around but the different changes in terrain was nice!

Fun little trail for kids! We hiked this trail with our 4 & 6 year old kids and they had a blast. We started off at the willow springs parking lot and then crossed at the cross walk. You have to pass through a wash and then the trail is very easy to follow. There was no waterfall at this time (November) but they still enjoyed climbing on the rocks and taking pictures. It is easy to see the trail and there are stairs made from rocks which makes it much easier for kids and inexperienced hikers to do this trail.
