Picked up a map at the visitor with some great tips given by the ranger. It is summer and can be very hot so be prepared. There are no places to get water or food once you are in the park. Though Hidden Valley is...More

It's on the north end of the park near the western entrance. Interesting rock formations and plant life in the area.

We visited in early July. The parking is adequate. There were a few people at the trail. We didn’t hike the whole loop. We hiked about 10 minutes from the parking lot. The picnic area is good. The views are excellent.

Easy hike and climb around a loop. There are lots of rock formations and variety of plants. This is an easier hike than many in the park, but I would still suggest proper foot wear.

I only had 1 day in JTNP and this valley was an easy first choice. I was also hiking alone and so didn't want to be too far into the wilderness. Finally, it was forecast to be over 100F the day I was there, so...More
