Desert solitude in Southern California. Singing sand dunes, volcanic cinder cones, Joshua tree forests, and carpets of wildflowers are all found at this 1.6 million acre park. A visit to its canyons, mountains and mesas will reveal long-abandoned mines, homesteads, and rock-walled military outposts. The park offers great hiking, backpacking, camping, 4-wheel driving and wild flower viewing. Located between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, Mojave provides serenity and solitude from major metropolitan areas.

Cool trail that apparently has the highest concentration of Joshua trees in the world. Nice views at the top. Took us 45 minutes to go up and 30 to descend so it’s a great quick hike!

Great hike through Joshua Trees, Juniper Trees and cactus habitat. A well maintained trail leads up the peak and at the top are great views. The hike up is not overly strenuous and overall it is an easy trail with little shade.

A nice trail although not well signed in the southeasterly section. You get to see some cool geography and walk through some nice cactus and sage type habitat. The gorge and hole-in-the-wall section is pretty cool but some parts are grazed by cattle and not much is left. Very little shade on this trail and luckily for us I️t was 75 and cloudy but I could see this being a very warm hike under different conditions.

Super cool

Only the rings make this hike difficult. The rest of the hike is easy, but do the rings if you are able. They are really fun! The landscape in and around these rock formations is amazing.

The abundance of barrel cacti on West side of the loop are the best part of the hike, but the views are great in many places.

Really nice trail! First part is flat, among the joshuas and lots of variety in desert plants and flowers. Then the climb to the top was rocky, and fun! Beautiful vistas at the top!

Awesome hike! Breathtaking views, and it is so quiet up there. Very spiritual.

This is hard to get to, since you have to drive down a 4.5-mile unmarked dirt road to get there. It's not really a trail. You only have to walk a few hundred yards to get to the lava tube. But it is so worth it. The lava tube chamber is just amazing. You have to see it to appreciate it.

This trail is so much fun, and the rock formations are amazing. Even if you can't climb the rings (which is the most fun part!), it's still worth hiking into the canyon and back out because it's so beautiful. Other than the rings, this is an easy trail. Highly recommended.

Mojave lava tube is well worth the trip

nice short trail

Fun, relatively easy trail. Some really cool volcanic intrusions can be spotted. Very nice views from the top. The old mine tailings and associated ruins were cool to check out.

Moderate trail with lots of wildlife. Went early in the am before the sun got hot and encountered a coyote, jack rabbit and a small herd of cattle. Some areas are soft and sandy, some firm and rocky.

SO FUN!!! And beautiful

Love this train and I highly recommend this to anyone. If I had the time I would do it again. I do suggest going up on the rings because it is easier than going down.
