This hike became our favorite because of the views, the vegetation and maybe because we hiked it on such a gorgeous day. The elevation is higher so the temperature was in the mid 50’s and the sky was bright with interesting clouds. We took 50 pictures but have selected the best 4 to share. The hike starts at the Black Rock Campground south of Yucca Valley. It is a 6 mile loop and follows a wash to the ridge where you can see almost 360: Palm Springs, The Salton Sea, Yucca Valley, and the San Bernadino Mountains.
