  • This is a must see because you can see so far. The views in Joshua Tree in general are very expansive but this one is the best. Anyone can see from here with barely leaving your car. There is a very c...  more »

  • Beautiful place. You can see in all directions for dozens of miles on a clear day. San Andreas Fault Line is visible - absolutely massive in size, too. It was extremely windy when we were there so definitely not a time for risky selfies on the edge.
  • Great views of the valley below but this place really shines at dawn or dusk, unfortunately parking is limited. Go if you can get there early or off peak, otherwise would suggest giving it a miss.
  • This is a beautiful vista of the San Andreas fault line and the city below. It's a great view day and night. Looking at the falt line from keys View really gives you a sense of how the earth is constantly moving. It's kind of scary. I sure am glad California didn't fall into the ocean while we were that. Support your national parks and stop in and see the beauty.
  • Though a bit remote in Joshua Tree NP (on a dead end road), it’s well worth the drive. The views of the valley and faultline are breathtaking; the drive up to it is full of Joshua trees.
  • Stunning views of Coachella Valley after an easy, paved walk. I'm not sure how far off the sidewalk you are supposed to go, but there is no fences, signs, or rangers other than the main part. You can get right to the edge.
