A hike to Carey's Castle in Hiking Joshua Tree National Park. This Place is hard time find and we want to keep it that way. Make sure you take plenty of water and food. Make sure you take a map of the area or YOU WILL GET LOST.

Good Luck!

The Joshua Tree Natl Park is all about wilderness and primitive settings. this is a tough hike, but well worth it. Bring along lots of water!

Great hike in JT
I have tried this hike twice. The 1st time, I went with 3 others and went up the wrong canyon and we discovered our mistake to far into the trip to correct it before dark. We found Carey's Castle on our 2nd trip about 3 weeks later. It was definately worth the trip. We got there in about 1 1/2 hours and had lunch after exploring the Castle. We, then, went to the mine that Carey was working. This is about 1/4 mile from the Castle. We will be going back on this hike soon.
