A doubletrack road that leads to a historical gem.

Description [Suggest Changes]

While the trail itself is nothing to write home about, this route is the way that runners can access Keys Ranch. The ranch is the remnant of a functioning operation from the not-so-distant past. As recently as the 1960's, visitors to the area would have come across a fully operational ranch, complete with a school and a general store. However, the area and its history are now preserved for posterity.

Heading north from the Echo Tee Trail parking area, runners will follow a continuously sandy trail all the way to the ranch. The going is fairly straightforward, unlike some of Joshua Tree's more rugged trails. You also won't have to worry about scratching yourself on close-growing and prickly native plants.

Be sure to check the operating hours of the ranch before setting out! Once you've explored the site, you'll simply return the way that you came.
