Mastodon Peak Loop Professional Review and Guide
"This fine short day hike leads past a palm-shaded oasis to the granite-crowned overlook of Mastodon Peak, where broad vistas unfold across the mountains and valleys of southern Joshua Tree National Park. The end of the hike takes you past the historic Mastodon Mine and Winona Mill site. The Mastodon Peak Loop is an excellent choice for hikers who don’t have the time, energy, or inclination to take the longer trail to Lost Palms Oasis. This trip leads you to a commanding vista atop granite-stacked Mastodon Peak. Be sure to bring binoculars; you may spot some of the bighorn sheep that dwell in the Eagle Mountains."
