Hidden Valley Trail in Joshua Tree National Park

The Hidden Valley Trail in Joshua Tree National Park is an easy hike that passes through amazing boulder formations and is a terrific trail for both kids and adults alike.  For those that are staying at the Hidden Valley Campground, it’s just a short walk.  But even if you are not camping nearby, this hike is right off the main park road, and it’s very likely that you’ll be passing by as you tour the park.

The Hidden Valley Trail is an easy hike that includes the park’s famous Joshua Trees that are nestled in a protected landscape that provides a viewing area like none other in the park.  It’s very accessible to the road, so you can expect it to be busy, but it’s very much worth it and there is plenty of room to spread out.

Tokopah Falls Trail in Sequoia National Park

When we visited Sequoia National Park, we expected to see plenty of tall trees-after all, that’s what the park is most known for.  But when we headed out to hike the Tokopah Falls Trail, we had no idea that we were going to find an amazing waterfall amidst steep cliffs and a rushing river.  While it takes a bit of work to get to Tokopah Falls, it is definitely worth the effort and time.

While you may come to Sequoia National Park to have a jaw-dropping experience looking at the tallest trees in the world, we highly recommend you take the time to head out on this great hike!

Moro Rock in Sequoia National Park

Moro Rock may not immediately come to mind when you think of visiting Sequoia National Park.  There is no doubt that the most common reason for visiting this park is because of the trees, and they are impressive.  But these trees only grow at an elevation between 5,000 and 7,000 feet, providing the opportunity for amazing views when you are able to get out of the tree cover.

Moro Rock in Sequoia National Park is one such place.  It has amazing views, and provided you can navigate through the crowds it only takes a few minutes to get to from where you park your vehicle.  Though it requires a bit stair climbing, you are sure to find this part of the park amazing and well worth your time.

If you have the ability to climb a few stairs in the high elevation, Moro Rock is a highly recommended stop in Sequoia National Park!
