  • Took part in the tour, but was left impressed and breathtaking views. Is that rock looks up that pick, but one rock was cracked in weathering. You can go free if the lower mountain. If you're lucky you can find on the coyotes.

  • Very nice little trail in super beautiful surroundings. Already at the entrance explains the origin of the name on a blackboard. Before the-disintegrating for use by livestock farmers, it was really a Hidden Valley. But even today it has something else of be hidden. Very varied and never get bored of the visit and the tour is really fun.

  • We went here on Easter Sunday. We did this hike and the one to the dam. This one was much more impressive! It was a busy hiking day but there was plenty of room on the trail. The landscape feels bizarre and alien. We saw some climbers in the distance dangling from some impressive rock faces. The joshua trees are a little surreal. They look like something out of a Doctor Seuss book.
  • Easy to access small hidden world in center of desert. Good for child. A lot of climbers
  • Stunning views and a great, well maintained 1 mile nature trail. be sure to take water the hot desert sun will require it, even on this short hike as there is about a 100 foot climb to get in and then again to get out.
