Joshua Tree National Park, California, United States (10.7 miles away)
 
Easy: 1.0 miles, 1 hour or less
Sample the best of Joshua Tree National Park on this short 1 mile nature trail loop in the heart of the park.

If time or the fierce sun means you only have the chance for one short hike at Joshua Tree National Park, then Hidden Valley is a great choice. Encircled on all sides by the familiar golden rock outcroppings of the Joshua Tree park, Hidden Valley certainly lives up to is name. In addition to being a great sheltered location, this place is also rumored...

2012 03 31 Joshua Tree 49 Palms Oasis Hike
by BrianKatrinaHiggins on Mar 31, 2012
Twentynine Palms, California, United States
Hiking | 3.2 miles (3.5 miles away)
This is an easy, popular hike as it is closest to 29 Palms and does not require an entrance fee to the national park to get to the trail head.  It also has great views of 29 Palms, but no Joshua Trees (it does have yucca plants).  The palm tree oasis is worth the walk too.  Spring time is nicest as the flowers and blooming cactus add to the scenery.

Scrambling around Joshua Tree

Joshua Tree NP - Wonderland of Rocks, California, United States
Hiking | 10.2 miles (9.1 miles away)
We spent a few days in Joshua Tree with warm weather and a great campsite.  Our big hike there was an off trail hiking/scrambling adventure that got quite a bit longer than planned.  Our outbound wash was pretty easy for the most part with only a few rock piles to scramble over.  But the return route was full of car and bus sized boulders that took a long time to get over....

Samuelson Rocks Hike, Joshua Tree National Park, CA
by MrsCyberhobo on Dec 31, 2010
Joshua Tree, California, United States
Hiking | 5.8 miles (11.4 miles away)
A slightly more interesting and less direct route to the Samuelson Rocks. The rocks on which Mr. Samuelson engraved his philosophies while homesteading in the 1920's make for a great day hike destination! Read the history here: http://www.nps.gov/jotr/historyculture/samrocks.htm.

Hiking | 5.0 miles (11.4 miles away)
New to the GPS world, I didn't realize how much it would deplete my phone to navigate to the hike with the GPS. So my camera died about halfway through and my pictures are therefore limited. Really nice hike on a really nice day.

Hiking | 10.6 miles (12.7 miles away)
This is a great hike that is not crowded, well maintained and has been newly marked. Turns and trail junctions are clearly labeled with directions and mileage. From the parking lot at Juniper Flats to Fan Canyon View and back is about 11 miles round trip. To hike to the view and then continue on Stubbe Springs Loop would be about 13 miles. We wanted to do that but ran out of...

Nick, Derek, and I took an overnight trip into Joshua Tree National Park. Despite miles of off-trail wandering and camping in a designated day-use area (oops) we managed to survive. Here's the pictures to prove it. A fabulous weekend for wildflowers, both the annuals that filled the low Mojave desert and the cactus, which all seem to be blooming early this year.

This is a really neat hike as there are a number of artifacts from the old mining days along the way.  It is not real well known, so it is not very busy with hikers like Lost Horse Mine, but it is easy and neat enough other people are on the trail.
