Fortynine Palms Oasis Trail | Joshua Tree National Park, CA


The Fortynine Palms Oasis Trail is a three-mile round-trip hike to a fan palm oasis located in the middle of nowhere. The oasis is located in the hills close to the northern Joshua Tree National Park boundary.

Leaving from the parking area, the trail begins climbing up the mountain. The path heads uphill from the start on a well maintained single track. Each step increases the view of the surrounding desert. After winding around the ridgetop, the trail descends to the oasis.

The trees were planted by miners to mark the spring that now irrigates the zone. The darkened trunks of the palms reflect the number of fires that have come through the area in recent history.
