Trail Information

The climb to Eureka Peak takes you past some of the lushes vegetation in the monument and to a great view of Palm Springs and the Morongo Basin. The Eureka Peak Trail starts at from the Black Canyon Trailhead. You will begin this hike by following the California Riding and Hiking Trail southeast from the trailhead. Follow this well-defined path for approximately two miles. At this point the trail will enter a large wash. The wash forks as the trail enters it. This is where the Eureka Peak Trail splits from the California Riding and Hiking Trail.


From Highway 62:
Traveling east from Yucca Valley to Joshua Lane, turn right on Joshua Lane and drive to the Black Canyon Ranger Station. Park in the ranger station parking area and walk to the Black Canyon Trailhead near the campground. Follow the California Riding and Hiking Trail for two miles to a fork that leads to Eureka Peak.
