Wow! An honest to goodness desert oasis! Really pretty! The palm trees are on the fault line. It is hard to believe that there is that much water available. We walked out to the pond. We did not make the moon loop this time, but...More

Very pleasant area for hiking. Check the website to see which guided tours are offered and when. At least one hike most days during season. $5 donation suggested. We went on an interesting morning walk with Harlan which discussed the fault lines and general area....More
AKA thousand palms, this is a walk beginning in a dense oasis full of untrimmed palms and out into the dessert to a variety of trails. We walked to the lake and back, easy and perhaps a mile or less each way. Great scenery and...More

This is a must do hike in the Desert. Fantastic views that seem untouched by time. Go around 10 in the morning. Not too well marked but you'll find it all amazing.
GREAT place for a short walk or a long hike. Very well maintained. I just wish that the map provided by the preserve has been clearer. Best come before sunset. Summer can be hot.
