How to Hike Barker Dam Trail in Joshua Tree National Park

Despite being a short and easy trail, Barker Dam is nonetheless a fun and beautiful place to visit, especially when it is full of water. Barker Dam Nature Trail loops past the lake and the dam, providing all the main features of Joshua Tree Nation Park – enormous rock boulders, historic sites, iconic Joshua trees, petroglyphs, and calming water (if you visit during the right season). It is the only hike in the park that you can see the vast amount of water in the middle of a desert. Even during the dry season, it is still gorgeous and pretty fun to explore the dry lake bed.
