  • Easily accessible parking lot right off the visitor center for the lost palm oasis and mastodon loop trails.
  • I wish I had more time to explore! An amazing oasis in the desert! We only explored a short distance along the trail. But wish I had time to make it to the Lost Palms Oasis. Even if you have only a few minutes, well worth the time! There is a beautiful mini oasis with some towering palms located a short five minutes hike from the parking lot.
