Highlight: Mud Springs Road
Mud Springs Road is an off-road trail that is a relaxing drive through a Joshua Tree forest with views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. As you continue on the trail and begin to increase in elevation, the Joshua Trees will begin to merge with the evergreen trees. This 4x4 trail offers multiple small campsites and a larger site at the end. This is a great trail to escape the heat of Las Vegas during the summer that is off the beaten path.
