Quail Springs Historic Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"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."
--Bob Gaines, Best Climbs Joshua Tree National Park (Falcon Guides).
"Quail Mtn. (5813´) is the highest point in Joshua Tree National Park. The mountain is at the southeast end of a long and complex ridge separating Covington Flat from the main part of Joshua Tree National Park. It is situated far from any roads and there is a lengthy approach across Lost Horse Valley."
--David & Jennifer Money Harris, Afoot and Afield: Inland Empire (Wilderness Press).
