Really nice trail! First part is flat, among the joshuas and lots of variety in desert plants and flowers. Then the climb to the top was rocky, and fun! Beautiful vistas at the top!

Awesome hike! Breathtaking views, and it is so quiet up there. Very spiritual.

Fun, relatively easy trail. Some really cool volcanic intrusions can be spotted. Very nice views from the top. The old mine tailings and associated ruins were cool to check out.

This hike takes you through what is the densest Joshua Tree forest in the world. It's a great ... and easy ... walk and very lightly traveled. There is only a slight incline going out until you get to the end where you can do some rock scrambling up a ridge and see some astonishing vistas.

Being from the northeast, i really enjoyed the difference of hiking a desert trail. Started my hike around 10 am; after about 15 minutes on the trail, I ran into 2 hikers on their return. After that, I had the trail to myself the rest of the day. Joshua trees of course were a real treat to see. Also saw a blacktail jackrabbit and a whole bunch of small Desert night lizards. View from the top was worth the sweat!
