This trail is a nice long hike. Lots of different desert scenes and the top over sees it! Vista is great & Moon Country trail is a great 4.4 miles of sand, desert, rocks, and the Preserve on the way there & back is really fun elements to go through.

Enjoyed the hike. Only passed four people in a group walking the trail, saw two folks behind me. There were no dogs and the walk back is easy if you take the wash back. I would recommend it.

Did this hike today and added the trip to the peak of Herman's Hike by crossing the wash and following the Herman's hike switchbacks to the summit. Ends up a 10.5 km hike.

Did this hike and Hermann's hike together in March with the wild flowers. LOVED IT - only draw back is the hike back along the road. Best is to drive 2 cars.

Awesome and fun trail. Make sure to see the pond and river. It's beautiful up there.

Best at the beginning of March when all the wild flowers are blooming

A steady hike with views and some incline. Some of it goes through deep sand, like being at the beach!

Very pretty, and fairly easy. We took the McCallum trail through the Thousand Palms Oasis and around McCallum pond then back to the Moon Country Trail. Take a stop from the trail to enjoy the view from atop Vista Point it is truly gorgeous.
