Sneakeye Spring Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This short but challenging hike takes you from a busy region of the park to an isolated high valley with pockets of greenery and oak trees, although the spring no longer is in evidence. This is a journey to an untrammeled wilderness. Due to its difficult entrance through the boulder-filled gorge, this hike appeals only to the adventuresome audience. The first portion of the hike is deceptively easy. Curving around the monzogranite, the troad is clear and level. Only when you arrive at the wash will you perceive the difficulties that lie ahead. Careful climbing through the boulders is a pleasure due to their grainy surface. The greater hazard is the rapacious catclaw springing up wherever there is any earth available. The high valley you reach on the northern edge of the Wonderland of Rocks has several side canyons to explore, and mature oak trees for shade and relaxation. There is no water, in spite of the name of the hike; be sure to bring plenty with you. A short but adventurous trip involving some boulder scrambling to a defunct spring just south of the Indian Cove Entrance near Twentynine Palms."
