Great views. Full exposure so bring plenty of water. I agree with previous post as to direction. It's nice to end at the oasis.

Great views with a variety of terrain including washes, switch-backs, cacti, palm trees and very easy water crossing. The 5.7 mile can be done easily in 3.5 hours but very little shade and water is a must.

Beautiful views, make sure to check weather conditions before you go, after you leave the water and shade of the palms its all dessert to the pools and it gets hot with no shade at all!

Can be done in 3 hours. Nice to do it this way: fern canyon - vandeventer - palm canyon. At the end, to to the palm canyon, you should follow the lower trail and not the upper one (victor trail).
Beautiful hike, not too strenuous, and a lot of landscapes/nature variation.
