At the beginning and end of the trail you have to climb a little above rocks, normal footwear, so sturdy sneakers, but should be enough. The great advantage of the Valley is that it is surrounded by rocks and is therefore relatively sheltered from the wind. Water should be taken with you, there are no drinking points.
Really really easy. 30 min going very slow. Very scenic tho. I was expecting to be a bit more challenging. This is recommended for older people or kids.
I've hiked in several regions of Joshua Tree National Park, nevertheless Hidden Valley has been my favorite location for years. The array of large boulders, junipers, and pines, interspersed by the Joshua Trees and wildflowers during springtime is absolutely gorgeous! Last time I went there, we were unexpectedly greeted with a light hail storm, the small fuzzy bits of ice fell on our gloves and we felt like children again, it was magical. The boulders allow for infinite possibles as to where to climb, or trek, or adventure (of course remain courteous to the visitors and wildlife while venturing in the rocks). The views are really nice for pictures, and the distance is not too long. One of the best desert hikes in Southern California in my humble opinion!
