The Mojave Desert Feature
Hiking in the Mojave Desert
Hiking trails are abundant throughout the desert and along the eastern base of the Sierra, meandering toward sights that you can't see from the road. Some of the best trails are unmarked; ask locals for directions. Among the prime hiking spots is the John Muir Trail, which starts near Mt. Whitney. Whether you're exploring the high or low desert, wear sunblock, protective clothing, and a hat. Watch for tarantulas, black widows, scorpions, snakes, and other creatures.
