DISCOVER PINE CITY w/ Desert Institute at Joshua Tree National Park
This hike is just the hike for those still a little intimated by Joshua Tree’s vastness: easy, informative, and just the right length.

Beginning at the Pine City backcountry board, this trail is less traveled and one of Joshua Tree’s nicest “hidden” treasures. It’s an architectural confection of Joshua Tree’s famous high desert plants, human history, and artful monster boulders, leading to an expansive view of the low desert. Participants will have lunch in a nearby pinyon pine burst of greenery and shade, then take an additional side-foray to the Desert Queen Mine, with a tale of its dramatic mining past.

About the Instructor: De Karlen is a Certified California Naturalist, Certified Interpretive Guide, and hiking and desert tour guide with Desert Adventures. Previously, she worked as an Interpretive Park Ranger in Yosemite National Park, so she truly enjoys sharing her knowledge about the wonders and processes of our gorgeous desert.
