Great trail, beautiful views. Be sure if you are going for your first time, it is easier to follow from the Joshua Tree entrance side of the trail, as it is more clearly marked. Starting from the “10” side, it starts off marked well, then the riverbed becomes confusing and can be treacherous to your paint job if you start follow tire tracks instead of a trail... which happens... and you spend an extra hour back tracking to find the trail. Be especially cautious and bring plenty of water in case you’re out there longer than you expected. The riverbed part washes out when it rains, and we’ve been seeing the trail getting hard to spot after these last few storms over Dec and beginning of January. Enjoy the ride!!!
