  • Sunset at Mojave Desert in Twentynine Palms, CA

This hike is just the hike for those still a little intimated by Joshua Tree’s vastness: easy, informative, and just the right length. Beginning at the Pine City backcountry board, this trail is less traveled and one of Joshua Tree’s nicest “hidden” treasures. It’s an architectural confection of Joshua Tree’s famous high desert plants, its human history, and monster artful boulders, leading to an expansive view of the low desert. We’ll have lunch in a nearby pinyon pine burst of greenery and shade, then take an additional side-foray to the Desert Queen Mine, with a tale of its dramatic mining past.

The ultimate goal of survival training is to prevent survival situations from occurring in the first place. However, when survival is unavoidable, mindset, skills and improvisation are key. Learn the essential considerations needed to safely explore the some-times harsh and often challenging desert landscape of Joshua Tree National Park. This workshop will provide an introduction to the fundamental thought processes, skills and knowledge needed to survive in desert regions and the hazards associated with desert travel.

After a 1.5 hour presentation on desert survival, we will have a dinner break. After the dinner break, we will travel into the park to the trail head where we will hike under a moon. The hike is approximately 2 miles round trip.
