Queen Vally Road Professional Reviews and Guides
"Queen Mtn. (5687´) is the second tallest summit in Joshua Tree National Park and is one of the most fun scrambles in the park. This cross-country adventure features a walk along a sandy wash, followed by a scramble up a rocky gully to the summit rocks. Queen Mtn. offers grand views over Queen Valley, the Wonderland of Rocks, and out to the high ridges of San Gorgonio and San Jacinto. Queen Mtn. is in a day-use area; no camping is allowed."

"Queen Valley does a wonderful job of introducing visitors to the region. The easy, flat dirt roads of this route provide access to several short hiking trails that showcase Joshua Tree’s rock formations and desert landscape. You can either ride this as an out-and-back on dirt or as a loop ride on paved Park Boulevard. Since the paved stretch is less scenic and longer, I recommend returning the way you came via dirt roads."
