The Skull Rock Nature Trail at Joshua Tree National Park is the perfect place to escape our busy California lives, reconnect with nature and enjoy some magnificent scenery.
If you plan on hiking the Skull Rock Trail, here are a couple of things to keep in mind before you head out on the trail.
If you are interested in camping at Joshua Tree overnight, the closest campsite to the Skull Rock Trail is the Jumbo Rocks Campground. Jumbo Rocks is the biggest campground at Joshua Tree that offers 124 sites amongst scenic rock formations.
We camped at the Jumbo Rocks campground overnight so it was very easy for us to wake up in the morning, eat breakfast and head out on the Skull Rock Trail before it got crowded.
The trail starts on a sandy path and travels away from the campsite towards Park Blvd. Parts of the trail are well marked with signs and have rocks laid out on the sides but then some sections are more confusing and less obvious.
Joshua Tree is one of the most beautiful National Park in Southern California that is easy to access and hike.
