Lost Palms Oasis

Indio, California

Lost Palms Oasis Professional Review and Guide

"This excellent, view-filled hike in the southeast reaches of the park leads you across the west slopes of the Eagle Mountains to an extensive grove of California fan palms in a rugged, granite-bound canyon. In a remote canyon in the southeast corner of Joshua Tree National Park is Lost Palms Oasis. With more than one hundred California fan palms crowding the canyon for 0.5 mile, this is the most extensive oasis in the park. The trail is well marked and easy to follow, but the only shade you will find is in Lost Palms Canyon beneath the palms."
