Fun to see water in such a dry place. If only there were fish...

Beautiful easy hike in a valley full of rocks to be climbed!

A rock scrambler's dream! So many rocks to climb along the entire loop...a ton of fun! The loop itself is not that amazing...pretty, but you follow a short path. Get off the trail and enjoy this wonderland.

Stunning at sunset!

A nice hike that doesn't take very long and offers some nice views of both the Joshua Trees and a lake/dam. The dam mostly dries up in summer but the area still remains greener than anywhere else in the park that I've seen and is certainly worth the hour or so that this hike takes.

Nice little walk - one of the few things that you can do even in the heat of a summer day. The cacti are really pretty and worth checking out.

Not a hike, but a very cool spot to check out the teddy bear cholla. I’ll admit I wasn’t stoked on coming here, but I’m glad my friend convinced me. Loved seeing the cool cacti.

This is truly a gorgeous area. We came here for sunset over Memorial Day weekend, not planning to walk this trail, but we hiked it in the dark and it was still awesome. This is a great spot to see the moon rise. I’ll have to come back in the daytime. :)

Lots of fun boulder problems and good rock. Very cool little area

As you start the hike you will come across a “fork” in the trail marked by stones gathered together in the Shape of a

Super cool to see all these cactus. Bees were not a problem. A must see if you get to the park.

I really enjoyed this trail. It had many different, rocky paths, and you had good views of old mining camps and abandoned buildings.

This was a very fun, scenic trail. Many great views, rock climbing, and very active during the weekend.

I really enjoyed this trail. The dam was kind of shallow, but the view was nice, there was lots of scenic background and great spot for taking photos.

Good loop with chances for rock scrambling if so inclined. Nice for a short trail run.

Great little walk. Truly an amazing little spot on the more desolate Colorado desert side of Joshua Tree. I wouldn’t say go out of your way but if you come in the cottonwood gate it’s worth the stop.

I did this trail by mistake (credit to bad prep I guess). It can be hard to follow at the begining, but I think it got better as the trail went on. Not amazing so maybe do another one in the area.

Nice one, worth doing with the other small one around like discovery and skull rock, but it does get repetitive. Still, it gives a good feeling for what is around

Cute small walk

That was well worth the small detour! After a full day of walking around and being fairly dirsty, the sight of the pond/lake is very special. Small walk worth doing

I'd personnally include doing the whole loop towards split rock to get a good feel of the desert, see face rock (or something like that), but anyhow it's not great, just gives a good feeling of the area.

If you are driving by, it's worth stopping to look at these Cholla cactus. Really in general, I think Joshua Tree is a lot about admiring the beauty of desert vegetation, and this is very special.

The cactus is cute. It's suitable to take pictures here before sunset.

The sight is similar to some other trais in this park. Many rocks with various shapes.

The rocks on this trail are interesting. It took us less than one hour.

It's amazing that there is a lake in the heart of the desert.

quick and easy, beautiful vegetation to look at.

Stunning views, a bit crowded, but worth it.
