  • Epic view over the valley. Get there well before sunset and claim a spot to watch the sun go down as it gets pretty crowded.  more »
  • After a moderate steep approach, you reach this vantage point. A short circular path with panels explains what you see or not. Due to the wind, aerosols and particulate matter are shipped from the nearby conurbation of Los Angeles to the valley, and often provide a diffuse view. But you should recognize Palm Springs, the wind turbines and the San Andreas Fault, which is not spectacular. The wind can be neat The viewpoint is quite nice, though not comparable to Dantes View in Death Valley. For this, the journey is shorter. If you have all day, okay, otherwise I'd prefer other points. And there should be bright sunshine.

  • It was very neat to just go see the big Joshua tree 🌵's big rock and there is a lot of people driving through and visiting the park.. Kids had fun
  • A fantastic place to encounter the views of the areas around the park, including the Salton Sea and Palm Springs areas. There can be haze, which is a good opportunity to learn about pollution in California.
