All reviews an oasis barrel cactus great hike early april moderate hike desert tortoise ft elevation gain relatively easy hike parking lot park service great scenery natural beauty short hike palms shade roundtrip miles
The hike was absolutely beautiful and provided lots of great scenery and bouldering. 3 miles but took us quite a while because we stopped a lot for pictures and the kids climbed on lots of rocks. This hike needs proper foot gear, water, and snacks
This trail snakes through JTNP's typical, stubbly landscape deep into 49 Palm Canyon. There are plenty of elevation changes and no shade, so it can feel a lot longer than 3.5 miles; the lush fan palm oasis at the end, however, is very green and...More
We did this hike this past week. Loved it.
It took us four hours but well worth it. Seeing the palm oasis at the end was incredible.
We got on the trail at 8:30. I would recommend 7:00 am. It was getting pretty warm when...More

This was our first hike in the JTNP area and it was an amazing introduction into the landscape. We thoroughly enjoyed the views on the way in and the oasis provided great shaded relief. Wonderful way to stretch legs after a day in the car!
If you are only going to hike 3 trails in J Tree, make this one of the three. It is an out an back trail, easy to follow and moderate in difficulty. It is not strenuous. Virtually all the trails in the park are short,...More
A great 3 mike hike with a wide range of wild life and plants to experience. From cactus to palm trees this naturally rich experience is not to be missed. Please love the nature and stay out of the oasis. People are guests and we...More
It's a mile and a half each way. It does involve some significant up-and-down in both directions, but the oasis is quite a gem, and I found the approach itself to be even more picturesque than the oasis. It's probably best... More
It's a mile and a half each way. It does involve some significant up-and-down in both directions, but the oasis is quite a gem, and I found the approach itself to be even more picturesque than the oasis. It's probably best to hike this in the morning or evening during hot days. Bring water.
