Quick hike to a natural arch and popular photography spot.
The hike goes across open desert, dotted with creosote and yuccas. The trail crosses the road once and continues toward the campground, then joins a loop trail that leads into the boulder garden. Once at the arch, you can walk right up to it and underneath it. With some rock climbing skills, you can even get on top of it. The arch and the maze of rocks around it are like a natural playground for rock scrambling, photography, and simply admiring the geology of Joshua Tree’s granite.
Walking along a well-kept trail that’s mostly flat. No obstacles are present.
