Enjoyed this trail in the end of November.
The first mile and the last mile back (because it is a out and back trial) was a little harder because this is all sand.

But the rest was definitely okay!

This out and back trail is not too strenuous and takes you through an awesome canyon wash. Be prepared to walk in loose sand. If you are out of shape this will challenge you. The approach could be considered boring to some people but for me the Joshua Tree forest and the sweeping views make the beginning just as epic as the canyon. The trail ends at a stand of giant willow trees, which seem to have no business being there. Near the end you enter into a giant wash and if you look to your right there is a few bushed blocking a path to a little boulder cave. It is nice and cool as it is shady and a breeze is channeled through the canyon. It is a great lunch spot. We completed this trail in about 2.5 hours but we stopped and explored a lot. It could be done much faster.

Really enjoyed this trail for its diversity and options to combine with other trails. Did the Maze trail out to connect with Big Pine, a very pretty but easy walk. Indeed it’s the journey not the destination. Did the North View Trail back which was more challenging due to elevation changes but definitely well worth it for the views and incredible rock formations. Only saw two other people on the entire trail. Was very glad to have this app to verify the trail route as a few points are a bit deceptive particularly on the North View trail. Enjoy!!

Very Beautiful. The best views are gotten by trudging through the sand. I️ wish I️ had worn shoes with a higher ankle profile.

Great hike. I would definitely do it again. I really enjoyed the hike it starts off in a Joshua Tree forest then ends in a canyon with some amazing rock formations.

did this hike in 2016, was amazing, best part it rained on us while in the desert. No flash floods thankfully, but enough to leave us in wonder.

I put most of Big Pine together with North View and Maze for a good walk. I was glad to get out of the sandy areas, loved climbing around in the rocks (didn't know that the trail ended where it did so just kept crawling down...). Nothing too difficult.
