Keys View is part of the recommended driving loop around the park. They don't have a trail here, but a short walk from the parking lot to the overlook. The view is incredible! There is a little bit of haze, but still a great view....More

Keys View is a just if you visit JTNP. It offers absolutely stunning views of Coachella Valley as well as Palm Springs and the San Andreas Fault. This was our first stop when visiting and we are glad we went!

A short drive to the top of a mountain which has overlooks down to the valley. Nice view but not a "have to see" place. I would pass if you are pressed for time.

We stopped here during our visit to Joshua Tree N.P. The views are quite nice from here, overlooking the valley and the fault line. It was hazy, which is probably common for this view, but was still nice and worth a stop.
