Take a Hike – Southern California

This page is a work in progress to organize and share the hikes that I have taken over the years.

Anza-Borrego Desert State Park

Hiking inside The Slot
Calcite Mine to Slot Canyon – A fun and impressive hike into a slot canyon.

Palms
Hellhole Canyon Trail to Maidenhair Falls – A hike that takes you from the desert floor to a palm oasis with “hidden” 20-foot falls.  Additional photos from along the trail:  ocotillo in bloom, lizard and jackrabbit.

On the way to Elephant Knees
Split Canyon to Mud Hills Wash to Elephant Knees

Death Valley National Park

Dante's View
Dante’s View – More of a beautiful look out point than a hike.

Hiking the Dunes
Mesquite Flat Dunes – Really, really fun!

Joshua Tree National Park

49 Palms
49 Palms Oasis Trail – Hike from a pretty barren looking desert to a palm oasis.  Joshua Trees are not seen on this trail.

Sycamore Canyon

Sycuan Peak – An extremely short hike to the summit.

Three Sisters Falls – Extremely steep hills down to the falls.  And there is no clear trail to the falls.  This can be a dangerous hike and many rescues take place.
