Hidden Valley Nature Loop is a fun place and usually my first stop when visiting Joshua Tree National Park.
The valley loop is home to several of the native plants that are home to park. Piñon Pine, Yucca, Beaver Tail Cactus and of course, Joshua Trees can be found along the trail.
The loop is just over a mile long but you can spend the whole day here scrambling around and exploring side trails.
The valley loop is also popular with climbers. While on your hike take a moment to stop and scan the boulders you’ll most definitely spot someone taking in the views.
