Nice short hiking trail in Joshua Tree National Park that makes a great loop. Turn off Park Blvd into the Split Rock day use area. Take the loop either way. Nice rock formations, wildlife, and desert landscapes. Make sure to take the extra side trip to see Face Rock. Bring water and this will be a nice hike.

While a short trail, it took us double what it should because we were just stunned by the beauty. Incredible formations!! Went in November, so vegetation dormant - boulders that much more stunning. Highly recommend. Bring water, lots of blazing sun even in winter, makes the shaded spots extra rewarding.

Awesome morning hiking trail before having to work. Enjoyable for all skill levels great photo ops all along the trail. Lots of little critters scattering around. I spent a few minutes watching a jack rabbit which was cool. Not only are all the rocks amazing the vegetation is pretty cool to study.

Sun is intense even in the am. Remember to bring water. Even if you think it's only a couple miles. There are so many opportunities to get off trail and confused. You will want water.
