Joshua Tree National Park
The Split Rock Loop in Joshua Tree National Park comes highly recommended for its delightful scenery, imaginative boulder gardens, light use and ease of travel. The trail is highlighted by Tulip Rock, The Tooth and Face Rock - three geologic formations with uncanny likenesses to their given names.
