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.
