Half-Day Guided Hike in Joshua Tree National Park

Half-Day Guided Hike in Joshua Tree National Park

I am a 20 year resident of the Mojave Desert and log 200 miles annually on foot within Joshua Tree National Park. Over the years and miles I've cultivated an awareness of landscape, ecological systems, and local culture that when contextualized by the trail becomes a narrative experience I'm eager to share. I landed in Joshua Tree after dropping out of college in 2001. Back then you arrived by chance or a friend of a friend said you had to check out the rocks, feel the energy, and camp under the stars. I fell in with the gathering characters, an assortment of dirtbag climbers, avant artists, practical new age visionaries, and entrepreneurs...an amalgam of identities that would go on to create the image of the High Desert that is so coveted today. I am legally permitted to guide within Joshua Tree National Park and happy to host you. I know my stuff and I want you to know it too.

This unique location is 30 min north of downtown Palm Springs & halfway to Joshua Tree National Park. Since it's high desert it's about 10 degrees cooler than Palm Springs. The Big Morongo Canyon Preserve is one of the largest cottonwood and willow riparian habitats in California. It's an oasis located in the Sand to Snow National Monument in the Mojave desert town of Morongo Valley. The Morongo Valley fault runs through the preserve, don't worry the fault has not moved in over 20,000 years. Some of the oldest rock formations in North America at approx 2.7 Billion years old can be seen here. The preserve is also an internationally known birding site. It's on the fringes of the Mojave and Colorado deserts. Sand to Snow National Monument extends to the western border of Joshua Tree National Park, where elevations are as low as 600 feet to the eastern summits of the much higher San Bernardino range & the tallest peak in Southern Cali being the 11,503 foot San Gorgonio Mountain.
