We did not complete the complete loop. A quarter in a river bed very sandy and flexible. A quarter in dense vegetation to look for the track, a nice quarter in a rocky area and the last quarter is reserved only for people trained to cross huge rocks with uneven. The overall impression is good but do not venture without means of localization.

I would rate this hike easy to moderate. There aren't any trail markers (should have a track maybe). You do meet obstacles, but if you look right, left, and maybe behind you, it's not hard to see a way around any obstacles. I don't boulder, or scramble much, and I'm only an average older hiker, and I enjoyed the outing. It is a bit sandy, though not really annoying. The first mile or so was the most scenic and fun (just the right amount of challenge). Some of the more distant areas we were just bushwacking in the desert which was fun (didn't see any snakes, though max temp was only 70 degrees). I plan an exploring again in the area to see if there are other routes that I can follow in the wonderland of rocks! Would love to see another doable loop in the area.

Beautiful scenery and “off the beaten path” of typical Joshua Tree hiking. That said, definitely not easy as there is no marked trail most of the way and the middle part of the hike requires a significant amount of scrambling and climbing. Would do it again but be prepared: download the map before you go and get ready to be creative when it comes to following it.

Great little hike with my five year old. Through the wash and a lot of boulder scrambling. Amazing views and Rick formations.
