The Wall Street Mill offers incredible views of Joshua Tree. If you choose to hike it at night, you'll get amazingly dark skies, great for capturing the Milky Way. 

Hike along the easy Wall Street Mill Trail for about one mile and you will reach the mill - if you are into night photography, this is an amazing subject that will bring you back again and again, always capturing something different. Explore around off trail - there are tons of boulders to play and climb around on - keep track of where you are if hiking at night though!

Camping is by donation, pick up yellow/manila envelope at entrance of each campsite. Choose campsite location, fill-out envelope, tear perforated portion, and clip on campsite post number.

Takes you back in time to a first of its kind mine with colourful characters and the site of a shoot out over water rights. Easy enjoyable walk

FYI - Camping at Wall Street Mill is illegal. That area is designated as Day-Use only. Here's what it says on the NPS site-- "Your backcountry campsite must be located one mile from the road and 500 feet from any trail or water source. Make yourself aware of any day-use areas in the vicinity (they are indicated on the topo maps at the backcountry registration boards)". Also, all fires are prohibited in the backcountry. If you want do an overnight in the backcountry you should park at one of the 13 "Backcountry Boards" and register there for free. Pay attention to the Day-Use areas and off-limits zones. Car camping can be found nearby at Hidden Valley, Ryan, and Jumbo Rocks campgrounds for a nightly fee.

Do you need a permit to camp here?
