Hike Ryan Mountain in Joshua Tree

Trailhead location: Ryan Trailhead
Loop Trail Hike: 3 miles
Rated: Moderate

Ryan Mountain is a well marked trail inside Joshua Tree National Park. This is my favorite hike in Joshua Tree because of the expansive top-down view of the park from the 5,457 foot peak. The trail is a steep climb to the summit, 1000 feet in a mile and a half. The best time to hike this trail are in Spring and Fall. Bring plenty of water because the desert air is so dry!
