Hike the Barber Peak Loop Trail

Barber Peak Loop Trail - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

The Barber Peak Loop Trail is a fun 5.7 mile hike in Mojave National Preserve, featuring exciting ladders and stone stairs in the desert cliffs. The incline is moderate and you will be well rewarded with stunning views of the Mojave Desert.

The Barber Peak Loop Trail is very well marked, crossing a number of four wheel roads and cow paths. The north end of the trail eventually meets up with the Hole in the Wall trail, if you want to extend your hike. The abundance of barrel cacti and succulents on the West side of the loop is one of the best parts of the hike - a stunning reminder of the resilient nature of desert vegetation.

There is very little shade along the trail so bring lots of extra water and sun protection. Dogs are allowed on the trail but must be kept on leash. You can find information on camping in Mojave National Preserve here.
