3 mile round trip hiking trail through a desert canyon that takes you to the 49 Palms Oasis. Trail head is at the end of Canyon Road ( off Hwy 62, 29 Palms Hwy). With kids round trip is about 2.5 hours. Moderately strenuous. Very hot and exposed hiking most of the way. Pit toilets at trailhead. Bring lots of water.
We loved this hike with our kids...it has a big reward at the end, at the 49 Palms Oasis. The going is steep (uphill and downhill both ways), and the first half is pretty exposed, so I recommend going in the morning and bringing plenty of water and sun protection.
