I definitely do not recommend a dog on this trail. the hills are made of barely solid dry mud & break apart with every step. add that the trail goes along an undercut precipice & you have a disaster for a dog (or human) too close to the edge.

Decent hike, very brown and dry and the oasis is simply 5 trees, one of which has burned down. I would recommend going to Joshua tree and doing Palm Springs oasis instead. Also, the oasis on this hike is halfway through the hike, so don’t go all the way to the end and back if you simply want to see the oasis.
