Start: 03/31/2018 End:04/01/2018
Difficulty: Moderately strenuous
Our primary destination is Juniper Flats, but we’ll see if we can work in a summit of Quail Mountain (the highest point in J Tree!) somewhere along the way. We’ll hike through some top-notch stands of Joshua trees, eye some Chollas from a safe distance, and eat lots of carbs. For an extra dose of flats, we may start at the Covington Flats backcountry board instead of the Juniper Flats board, but either way it’ll be around 6-7 miles a day.
Also, we’ll need a participant driver! You’ll get extra Clif Bars or a bedtime poem or something.
