We stopped at this lookout both during the day and at sunset. Whilst sunset is beautiful, the seeing afar wasn't so good because of the shadows cast by the mountains in the valley. It was also more crowded at sunset. During the day you can...More

This is one of the most beautiful parts of Joshua tree state park. We drove through once, went out to eat in Pioneertown and ended up going back through and happened upon Keys view. It’s near the middle of the park, past Hemingway and skull...More

We were really lucky when we stopped that the day was so clear. There is a lot of parking at this location and that’s good because you don’t want to rush through this vista. On a clear day you can see for miles, from Mexico...More

This is a great stop in Joshua Tree. You can see for long distances and there is a friendly map indicating what is in the distance. Good place for an up close view of a Joshua Tree.

This place has changed a little bit, but the view was still amazing. A lot of people there so I guess that’s something to get used to now with Joshua trees popularity hopefully people will treat the park well.

Unfortunately on the day I visited, the smog were covering the view just slightly so I couldn't enjoy it much. It was particularly windy but still with what i could see, it was gorgeous.

We enjoyed the view and even saw a rattlesnake about 3 feet down over the sidewalk wall. If only the view could be smog free!

Had just done Ryan Mountain and these views were better. You can see Palm Springs, The Salton Sea and so much more. It's wheelchair accessible and there's plenty of benches and large rocks to sit and admire the view.

So many sights can be seen from here - the San Andreas Fault, the accidental sea, Palm Springs etc. It is also cooler here in Summer with breezes from the mountains. Can also see snow capped peaks on the horizon
