  • Picnic area with outhouses and lots of parking. There is a loop trail that is one mile and takes about an hour if you take your time. The "Hidden Valley" was used for cattle grazing. Surrounding this ...  more »
  • This is one of the most beautiful Parks in this area so be prepared for the crowds that come along with it. We went on Feb 1st so our wait to get in at Joshua Tree entrance was minimal although it can...  more »
  • This is a mostly flat, one mile loop, with some big rocks to climb over going in and out of the valley. It's a very scenic trail with plenty of photo ops.  more »

  • Nice short hike with many rocks to climb on near the trail. My two boys love climbing on all the rocks. A lot of different palnts to look at. Informative signs posted periodically along the trail with information about the rock formations, plants, and animals.
  • This is one of the best hikes in the area. It's not too long, it's not that steep, but there's lots of huge rock formations to climb and make this hike strenuous and long if you want. The hike also has lots of interesting things for actual rock climbing enthusiasts, and you can see many of them in action. If you can do just one hike in the park, do this one. You get a great view of the Joshua Trees spread out over the desert scape, an amazing view of the rock formations in this area, and some great views of vegetation in the desert.
  • One of the best hikes i made so far. Easy hike on a 1 mile loop. you get some great views along the way. It is a real hidden Valley...
  • Beautiful 1 mile loop trail. It's a pretty easy hike and there are lots of opportunities to climb rocks. There's so many different rock formations that look inviting that you'll want to climb them all. Depending on how much climbing you do, it'll take a little over an hour to complete the trail.
  • Beautiful 1 mile easy hike. The rocks are so beautiful to look at and the weather was wonderful early in the morning. Not crowded that early so it was relaxing
