We went in the afternoon, walked in the shadows of some of the boulders, watched the rock climbers moving up and down the sides of the boulders, and generally enjoyed the crisp, sunny desert air.

This circular hike is one of the easiest hikes imaginable, yet it is full of gorgeous views and many informative signs. The boulders framing the Hidden Valley are fantastic! Hidden Valley is located near the West entrance of Joshua Tree National Parl.

Nice place to hike, you can rock climb also. The hike was easy and the weather was perfect when we went last Saturday. It would be better if we went around sunset. Anyway, bring plenty of water.

We visited Hidden Valley on a day trip to Joshua Tree National Park. There is a campground and a picnic area. We also took a hike. There is both a paved road to get there; we also drove one of the dirt roads to Hidden Valley.
