"Eureka Peak (5518´) is one of the major summits above 5000 feet in Joshua Tree National Park. It is accessed by a trail from Black Rock Campground and by a road from Upper Covington Flat. This trip can be done as a one-way hike with a shuttle, or as a loop trip from Black Rock Campground. The peak itself is unimpressive (save for its views of San Gorgonio), but the journey is rewarding. The trail explores beautiful washes and ridges lushly blanketed by yuccas and cacti. This trip is described in the uphill direction from Black Rock Campground, but it is also possible to hike downhill from the peak. There is a maze of other trails through this area. They are usually marked, but be sure to carry a map and navigation equipment."
