The Hike: 49 Palms Oasis Trail
Location: Joshua Tree National Park – Trailhead & Map
Distance: 3 Miles Total – Out & Back
Elevation Gain: 300 feet
I have previously hiked and enjoyed Maidenhair Falls (Palm Oasis) in Anza-Borrego Desert. Granted, I usually hike to Maidenhair during wildflower season, and I have found that desert landscape to be abundant with life and beauty. If you are looking for a palm oasis tucked away in the desert, I highly recommend visiting Anza-Borrego. I could not help comparing the two hikes.
