Warren Peak Trail begins from the Black Canyon Trailhead near the campground and ranger station. The trail follows a drainage to the northeast ridge of Warren Peak, then leads along the ridge to the summit. So keep the summit in view as you hike. Hikers will enjoy views of the surrounding terrain from the summit.
En route to the peak you'll pass through interesting desert terrain that includes cacti, Joshua trees and pinyon pine. The trail is faint in many spots so a map and compass are suggested tools on this trip. Watch for trail markers that read "WP" for Warren Peak at forks in the drainage. The sandy waterway leads to a canyon, that opens before you reach the ridge. The last half mile of the climb is steep with loose rock.
Directions: From Highway 62, Travel eastward from Yucca Valley to Joshua Lane. Turn right on Joshua Lane and travel to the Black Canyon Ranger Station. Park in the ranger station parking area and walk to the Black Canyon Trailhead near the campground.
Elevation: 4,000 feet
