Skull Rock Nature Loop

Joshua Tree National Park

The Skull Rock Nature Loop passes through a spectacular maze of massive rock formations, rolling hills and richly-lined washes. Rock in this area began as liquid molten deep below the earth's surface. Continuously heated by movements in the Earth's crust, this molten oozed upward and cooled while still below the surface. Subsequent surface layer erosion exposed the rock, a form of granite called Monzogranite.
