What a grand adventure it was experiencing the unique landscape just outside Palm Springs. Amazing to see it is preserved and protected by our national park system. Can't wait to explore more areas on my next visit

I thought that Hidden Valley would have a nice easy walking trail but it is really just a campsite. A good, clean, campsite with toilets that looked like it is protected from the wind and has afternoon shade. But, it is not a hiking destination, those are close by

We loved hiking this trail. Lots and lots of great picture opportunities. It's not a strenuous hike. There are lots of rock formations,Joshua trees and Vistas to see. One downfall was the trail wasn't always marked well.

Go for a 2h hike around the valley and wake your inner child. Go on rocks and conquer higher viewpoints. Remember though about hot weather and watch your step ;)

While the Hidden Valley trail can get quite crowded (including the adjacent parking lot) it's definitely worth visiting. While the 1 mile loop is a relatively easy walk it does have some stairs and small rocks which would make it challenging for those with mobility issues. It is well signed, has plenty of information plaques which provide descriptions of the... More

This is a great little loop. It has some info about the flora & fauna of the park itself, and the history of the park. This hike gives you a nice cross section of what the park has to offer - it has unique rock formations, trees and cacti that you can find throughout the rest of Joshua tree national... More

This hike gives you a complete overview of what Joshua Tree NP is all about. Not difficult and very scenic. This hike and area can be busy due to its popularity. Take your camera and water bottle and you will be set.

Took a short hike for about three hours with good views and lots to see. Signage was weak for the different paths but enough to get you to and from. No facilities on hike, so be prepared if you bring along any beverages.
