If you enjoy desert hiking, then this undersold gem of a hike is for you. This is a challenging 10 mile hike that takes you through some of the most stunning desert scenery, the majestic joshua trees and then you ascent up the mountain. Your effort will be rewarded with a spectacular 360 view of the San Bernardino mountains and... More

So big, so diverse, so much to see especially as the landscape changes as you transition between the different desert ecosystems of the Mojave and Colorado deserts. Lots of trails for all hikers from novice to advanced. Lots can be seen on an auto tour for those not able to hike in the desert. The landscape is a photographer's dreamscape.... More

We drove this trail in my Nissan Xterra on a Wednesday evening at sunset. We encountered no one. It's a lovely off-road trail, very serene and quiet. The surroundings are beautiful and the Joshua Trees in this part of the park are enormous. The sense of isolation is the best part if you're looking to get away from the crowds... More

... and worth it. You'll need 4 wheel drive and a map to get here. We went on a holiday weekend in winter and encountered no one else. For us this was a good thing. The view was stunning. I hope this information helps the good and conscientious travelers.

This is a good day hike in Joshua Tree National Park. My husband and I hiked it in March 2012. I call it a day hike, but it won't take you all day. Ask a ranger about it before doing it. We had done other easier hikes earlier in our trip, and I was glad. I don't recommend doing this... More

This is a little traveled area in Joshua Tree, but very very good. It is clearly marked on the Park map, and is one of the several dirt road experiences. The two easiest off road trips in the Park are this one and the Geology trail. The others take a braver driver than me. The very first part of this... More
