Rock Climbing, Hiking, Nature Walk, Desert Oasis
The 49 Palms Oasis is an absolutely amazing area of Joshua Tree National Park! Our half day 49 Palms Oasis adventure is the best way to experience everything that Joshua Tree has to offer. We will climb a few excellent rock climbing routes before tackling the 1.5 mile (3 miles round-trip) hike to the oasis. The oasis is a magical place with lush palm trees, flowing water, and even frogs! This is the best place in the entire park to relax and have lunch.
About the Adventure
We start this adventure by sampling a few excellent rock climbing routes. The rock in this area of the park is different- it is more slick and has loads of embedded pebbles which make excellent hand and foot holds! After you've had your fill of climbing we will start the hike to the oasis. This hike gains approximately 500 feet in elevation before dropping all the way back down to the oasis. The hike affords spectacular views of 29 Palms city, and snakes it's way through one of the most densely-laden cactus areas of the park. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the desert flora from your knowledgeable Stone Adventures guide. Once we arrive at the oasis we will relax under the shady palm trees while listening to the soft sounds of trickling water and chirping birds.
