Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

Bob Gaines
"Trashcan Rock at the Quail Springs Picnic Area is one of Joshua Trees quintessential roadside crags. A short hike leads to Hound Rocks and two classic 5.10 crack climbs. Farther down the trail, sitting high on a hillside, is the White Cliffs of Dover, featuring Yosemite-like dihedrals and cracks plus a couple of excellent face climbs, all on very smooth, highquality granite."
