    Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

    "The West Side Loop, which circles the hills to the southwest of Black Rock Campground, is the newest addition to the extensive network of trails from Black Rock Campground. While it lacks some of the diversity and splendor of the Panorama Loop, it’s nonetheless quite enjoyable and worthy of a hike if you’re a repeat visitor. The entire area is rich with Joshua trees, Mojave yuccas, nolinas, junipers, pinyon pines, and many species of cactus. Walk west from the ranger station toward the low hills. At the edge of the campground, slightly south of the ranger station, find the sign marking the beginning of the West Side Loop Trail." Read more
