We hiked to Wall Street Mill while visiting Joshua Tree. The hike starts from Barker Dam trailhead and is about 2 miles round trip, flat and easy although it's exposed so probably very hot in the summer. There were lots of wildflowers blooming when we...More

We enjoyed our hike to Wall Street Mill, which can be found in the same parking lot as Barker Dam trail head. We found the trails in Joshua Tree to not be well marked and usually ended up just following others footprints and this hike...More

It is a great way to understand why the area first attracted people to it. It was all about gold and other minerals.

It's about 4 miles out and back and I see something new every time I do it. The terrain is flat and easy and there are lots of great ruins on the way, including the old Wonderland Ranch ruins a few hundred feet off the...More

This is an interesting hike to some human 20th century artifacts dating to long before the area became a park. We walked this trail 10 years ago and again on Valentine's Day, 2018. The deterioration is marked. Worst of all, the stone marker noting the...More

It's ok, not the most exciting hike in the world by any means. We visited in July, so obviously super hot, but do-able, as this was a pretty short trail. As long as you bring water, you're fine. The walk out to the mill is...More

Apparently this was an active mine years ago. Now there's just a bunch of rusted metal machinery (and a really cool looking very old dilapidated truck). But for me the most interesting thing was walking out in the desert with nothing but Joshua trees, sand...More

It was an interesting hike as the distance is not too long, it is flat, and there is an old house, windmill, cars etc on the way to the mill which were interesting to explore.

It's close to Baker Dam but you can save 1/2 mile of walking by starting from the next parking area 0.3 miles located just off the dirt Queen Valley Road - in stead of going into the Baker Dam parking lot, go down the Queen...More

A nice hike to an old mill with a couple of neat abandoned cars. While it is an easy 2.2 mile RT hike (flat) you do walk in sand which can slow you down so leave a little extra time. This is also where we...More
