  • All of Joshua Tree National Park is worth a visit. Just drive through from one end to the other. It is a beautiful drive. There are many stops, and the Keys View really shows the valley. Take warm clo...  more »
  • Very easy loop walk to excellent views of the Coachella Valley. Can see Palm Springs clearly as well as distant mountains. Paved path with little grade, so easy for everyone in the family.  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.
