Hiking in Joshua Tree National Park

There are many trails in Joshua Tree at different levels endurance and length. Most of the hikes we feature here are easy with elevation gains less than 800 feet and distance less than 5 miles. 2 exceptions to this are the Lost Palms Oasis Trail (1089 ft, 7.2 miles) and the Ryan Mountain Trail. (1089 ft., 3 miles). We have also included some areas with short trails (.2 miles) but plenty of interesting scenery. Use the menu to navigate the different Park areas. click on image links for more images. If you would like more hiking information All Trails links will take you to their website .
