Key's View is the best drive-up vista in Joshua Tree National Park. From the top you can see the Coachella Valley and the San Andreas Fault. You can also catch a view of Southern California's two highest mountains, Mount San Jacinto and Mount Gorgonio. On a clear day you can see California's largest lake, the Salton Sea. This lookout is vast and expansive, I'd recommend starting at sunrise here, or ending at sunset. We ended our day trip here at sunset and caught it at the perfect golden hour. The entire valley was blanketed in a soft, warm glow, so we fully took advantage and has a fun mini photo sesh.
Tip: If you'd rather hike to a lookout, Ryan Mountain has sweeping panoramic views.
