Description

The Hidden Valley Area is perhaps the busiest and most popular area in the Park and for good reason with it's vast number of routes and boulder problems, many of which are classics, as well as convenient camping for those lucky enough to score a campsite.

Getting There

  • Approach from the north via the town of Joshua Tree.
  • Approach from the east from the town of 29 Palms and the Cottonwood Entrance.

Please see the individual areas for more detailed approach information.
