Ldrs: Susan Stahl and Bernie Fox
Moderately difficult backpacking trip in off-trail areas of a lesser-traveled region in Joshua Tree National Park. We start at the Keys West backcountry registration board (Boy Scout trailhead) on Saturday at noon to hike to our camp where we set up, enjoy a leisurely happy hour, and turn in early for the night. At dawn Sunday morning, we day-hike to Mount Minerva Hoyt (named after the woman responsible for the park's creation), then continue on to Quail Mountain (the highest peak in JTNP) and eat lunch. We'll descend to camp, pack up, and head back to the cars. Mileage is approximately 14 miles RT, with 2140 elevation gain, mostly off-trail. Each participant must carry in enough water for 2 days of hiking, possibly in warm weather (trip will be modified if temperatures are unseasonably hot). Participants pay JTNP entry fee of $30 per car (or bring a National Parks Pass). Parking is limited, so carpooling is encouraged. Please email your hiking/backpacking resume with recent conditioning and contact information to Leader Susan Stahl (
