  • Keys View (previously known as Salton View, for an obvious reason) is one of the "must-see" places in the Park. The view is incredible, at least on a clear day. Most days the wind is out of the west, ...  more »
  • Short drive to the lookout. Many great views, and informative signs. We could walk out to the cliff's for picture's. We could see all the way to the Salton sea, but there was some smog over the valley...  more »
  • Located in the heart of Joshua Tree NP, the views over the valley are spectacular, particularly at sunset. Take your camera, sit back & take in the breathtaking sunset!  more »

  • Keys View is the highest road point in Joshua Tree NP. From here, there are views of a good chunk of the Coachella Valley and the Salton Sea in the distance. In the foreground of the view, a keen eye can discern the line of ridges and water features that mark the path of the world famous San Andreas Fault. A short paved trail leads up to the best views. There is a less steep path that should allow persons requiring accessible paths to the vista point. A single-track trail leads west from the parking area across the higher ridges if you are looking for more spectacular views. There is a vault toilet but no running water so plan accordingly. The area can get very windy so beware of loose items such as hats and papers blowing away.
  • The best view in the house during the day, sunset, full moon or a black night. Could stand here all day enjoying the view. Watch out for the bees during the day.
  • Great view of the San Andreas Fault and Salton Sea. Sunset is the best time to go, but get there a little early since parking is limited.
  • I saw one one of the most amazing sunsets tonight! It's worth the drive. Breath taking view!
  • Absolutely stunning view of Palm Springs, from Indio to the Morongo Valley casino.
