Nice short loop in Joshua Tree National Park Turn off Park Blvd into the Split Rock day use area. Take trail either way. Nice roc formations, wildlife, and desert landscapes. Make sure to take the extra side trip to see Face Rock.

Awesome morning hiking trail before having to work. Enjoyable for all skill levels great photo ops all along the trail. Lots of little critters scattering around. I spent a few minutes watching a jack rabbit which was cool. Not only are all the rocks amazing the vegetation is pretty cool to study.

Sun is intense even in the am. Remember to bring water. Even if you think it's only a couple miles. There are so many opportunities to get off trail and confused. You will want water.
