Hidden Valley Nature Trail
This easy, 1-mile loop trail is one of the most popular hikes in the park! Hidden Valley is home to unique rock formations and the park’s iconic Joshua trees. The valley also has a dark past that you can learn about on the Action Tour Guide’s Joshua Tree Tour.
Did you know that Joshua Tree National Park is home to 5 oases?
Cottonwood Spring is just as lush and green as it sounds. Here, you can hike under palm trees and learn about the Cahuilla people who still live near Joshua Tree. The oasis is also an excellent spot for birding! So bring your binoculars if you’re interested in getting a good look at some of Joshua Tree’s 250+ bird species.
The lookout at Keys View gives you a panoramic view of the park and even beyond! This sight of the Coachella Valley is wheelchair accessible, so everyone can have a chance to see a birds-eye view of the desert.
