A short trail that loops away from the base of Cap Rock.

Description

This is a great option for a picnic stop and easy run. The trail starts at the base of Cap Rock, the name given to the outcropping of boulders topped by a balanced rock slab, before looping to the southeast around a neaby outcropping. The trail is well-marked, flat, and easy to travel as it explores the Joshua Tree-dotted landscape.

This is a popular site for rock climbers, so it's not uncommon to see them ascending the rocks and crags in the area. Look for wildflower blooms in the spring for a special treat.
