Just stopped for a few minutes after long hike at Panorama, but were pleased with the views and rock formations. Hike a bit, climb a bit (with CARE). Enjoy.

I really enjoyed taking in the surrounding scenery of impressive rock formations and vegetations that is stunningly surreal while hiking the Hidden Valley trail. Those qualities undoubtably makes this easy one-mile loop trek one of must-do hikes while visiting Joshua Tree!
