Length: 3 mi • Est. 1 h 56 m
This out and back hike to the summit of Ryan Mountain is one of the most popular trails in the park. The trail offers incredible views across the landscape. It gets incredibly hot here in the summer, so between June and September it's best to do this one either in the early morning or evening. This is a great trail to view the sunset from.Show more

Sample the best of Joshua Tree National Park on this short 1 mile nature trail loop in the heart of the park. If time or the fierce sun means you only have the chance for one short hike at Joshua Tree National Park, then Hidden Valley is a great choice. Encircled on all sides by the familiar golden rock outcroppings of the Joshua Tree park, Hidden Valley certainly lives up to is name. In addition to being a great sheltered location, this place is also rumored to have been well known to 19th century cattle rustlers who would hide their bovine hoards in here. The nature trail takes you on a circuitous route around some of the most prominent features of the park, including interpretive guides to the area's diversity, plant life and geology. Off the trail you will find some rock climbing sites.Show more

Length: 7.2 mi • Est. 3 h 36 m
This trail is located on the southern side of Joshua Tree National Park at a lower altitude. You won't find many Joshua Trees here, but you'll find palm trees at the oasis! After 3.5 miles, you'll reach a real life desert oasis teeming with life. Getting down to the oasis requires a difficult off-route scramble. The park suggests not hiking this trail May to October because of extreme heat.Show more

Length: 3.1 mi • Est. 1 h 15 m
Explore rocky ridges, incredible views and a true desert oasis on this easily accessed hike. Just off of Twenty Nine Palms Highway, you'll turn onto a small dirt road which leads to the trailhead. The trail climbs upward for a half mile offering awesome views of the valley. You'll then go up and down along several ridges, finally reaching a small, wet, oasis surrounded by palm trees. In the dry desert, it's incredible to see. You'll then turn around and go back the same way.Show more
