This is a steep trail but relatively short and the view at the top is worth the climb. We started at 3:15 and were back at the trail head by 5.If you are looking for a good sunset spot hike up for about 10 minutes and you will have a great view of the basin and mountains in the distance. This is a great hike for less experienced hikers or those not in fantastic shape if you are looking to challenge yourself a bit. I recommend anyone who visits Joshua Tree do this hike for the view at the summit. You are higher than at Keys View and there are less people.

Good trail, though a steep, steady incline. Rewarded with great views and watching 8 big horn sheep. Took us about an hour to get to the top and 45 minutes to come down. Nice to time it so you can drive to Keys View to watch the sunset, which was spectacular.
