About the neighbourhood
We are located 3 miles East of Joshua Tree on 10 acres of land. We are a half mile below JTNP boundary with 360 degree view. You can walk onto Park land from our house to do a little exploring and rock-climbing, without paying the entrance fee to get into the Park. We are 8 miles from 49 Palms Canyon which is a great hike to an oasis within JTNP that you can visit without paying an entrance fee. It is a moderately strenuous hike of 3 miles round trip to get to and from an actual desert oasis. If you drive into JTNP thru the Joshua Tree entrance, 'hidden valley' is 18 miles from our house, 'key's view is 22 miles, and 'ryan mountain trailhead' is 24 miles.
