Joshua Tree Tail Information

While we only hiked three trails at our stay, there are many - MANY trails to explore. We hiked the Discovery Trail, Skull Rock Trail, and got lost in the trails around Wall Street Mill. Are we're 3/10 difficulty - some harder sections at Wall Street Mill but that was probably because we did not know where we were going.

The best source for information is on the National Parks website. There you can find everything from trail maps to closures. National Parks really does an excellent job!
