    High View Trail

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This moderately steep trail is 2.8 miles long and climbs 300 feet. It is a beautiful trail surrounded by the Mojave Desert environment that rivals my favorite desert, Organ Pipe in Arizona. You will pass through pinion pine trees, junipers, Joshua trees, beaver tail cactus, a few chollas, and many bushes and a variety of other trees. Surrounded by mountains with beautiful outcroppings of rocks and boulders, the area has a garden like quality. If it is not a cloudy day you will have a view of Mt. San Gorgonio, an 11,499 foot peak in the San Bernardina Mountains. A nature trail handout may be gotten from the Black Rock visitor center and will provide you with interesting information and plant identification that corresponds with numbered posts along the trail.
