About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Hidden Valley Trail is an easy 1-mile loop that is located in Joshua Tree National Park. The landscape looks like it’s straight out of Dr. Seuss between the spiky Joshua Trees, cholla cacti and the giant granite boulders. The terrain is flat and open, allowing children to run free without concern. The main trails, like many National Parks, are well marked and have nice plaques along the way explaining animals, plants and petroglyphs. With a plethora of boulders everywhere, Joshua Tree National Park is a popular climbing spot, so toddlers and little kids will love how easily they can climb the granite boulders.

Im Rachel, a Branch Ambassador with the Charleston/Low Country branch in South Carolina. I have been volunteering with Hike it Baby since shortly after our branch formed in 2016. I love how Hike it Baby has enabled me to connect with others in my community and being able to instill a love and enthusiasm for the outdoors in my children.
