  • 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 lookout to see the entire Coachella Valley! And it's in Joshua Tree so that makes it better. Best enjoyed if you ride your bike up there so you can speed down!!!
  • Keys view is the end of the paved road with a parking area and stunning views to the south, over Palm Springs to San Jacinto mountain and over to the east to the Salton Sea. But it's even nicer to leave your car and walk on use trails to the west, along a ridge line, and over several small summits. The intrepid will reach Inspiration Peak and... be inspired!
  • Great spot offering amazing views of the Coachella Valley. Very popular spot for viewing sunsets , there is limited parking up there so arrives early. There is a bathroom located near the parking lot.
  • Amazing place to view the sunset. Get there a little early as good spots to view and take a picture fill up quickly. Also since the sun is setting over mountain, keep in mind that it will set sooner than the stated times for sunset.
  • 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.
