Panorama Loop

Joshua Tree National Park

The Panorama Loop ventures into the high Mojave Desert where Joshua Tree forests and open valleys give way to mountainous Pinyon-Juniper woodlands. These woodlands - which as recently as 10,000 years ago were prevalent throughout the Park - are now considered a 'Relic' landscape. Warmer and drier temperatures have forced their retreat into higher, more isolated elevation pockets, subsequently segmenting and reducing overall populations. Hikers will enjoy a transitional landscape, terrific views and varied terrain along the Panorama Loop Trail.
