Great trail run!

Word the wise because we have friends who've struggled with this trail: aim for spring/fall seasons for hiking if you're not used to this weather or trails-- take water and snacks! I read somewhere that it's a good idea to head back to the trailhead when your water is half gone.... this trail will be strenuous if you're not used to hiking. No shade while hiking, once you get to the "oasis" you'll find shade. Hydrate for this one especially. Enjoy.

Excellent hike. Be careful at the end after descending the steps there is a false trail which takes in the wrong direction but to a dead end. So come back to the steps to take you back on the original trail.

The hike goes up at first and has lots of rocks. Also,there are stone steps.The hike has nice views of the hills and snowcap mountains.In the middle of the hike you start getting views of the oasis you are heading to.When you reach the oasis it is very cool and shady.

The trail itself isn't hard the oasis is really all that makes it worth it. Not very impressed with Joshua tree overall but this oasis was the highlight of our trip and we saw quite a bit of the main park.

Better to go earlier in the morning then later in the day when more people are there. By 10am all the parking spots were taken.
