Description

Added by Juan Moreno

Incredible views of all of Joshua Tree National Park. Great photographic opportunities. Distance: 3 miles. Elevation gain: 1100'.

Hike starts at the base of Ryan Mountain. The trail runs along side the mountain, offering great views overlooking Joshua Tree. Once you hit the summit, you'll get great panormaic views of the national park as the top of Ryan Mountain is at an elevation of 5457ft.

The trail is open during all seasons, but if you're lucky enough to get it in the winter, with a little snow, something that doesn't happen often, be sure to bring your camera and take it all in. Next time it snows up there, plan your trip because the snow does not last. Joshua Tree with snow is a must see.
