“A beautiful run offering interesting views, a decent leg workout, and many shaded resting areas.”— Jeff Hunter
Along the way, there are interesting rock formations as well as plenty of native vegetation. Several areas along the way offer shade. Miners used this route to travel between mines back in the mining heyday of Joshua Tree. All mines are blocked off for safety today.
Camping is allowed in this area, however, there are no water sources, so you'll need to bring your own. Bathrooms at the parking lot are well maintained. There are several alternate paths along the way that offer minor boulder hopping.
With three great trails from one parking lot, this is one of the best spots in this park!
