Beyond the popular and easily reached Lost Palms Oasis exists a series of smaller, less accessible groves and oases. Victory Palms – just over a mile down canyon from Lost Palms Oasis – is an isolated and rewarding destination for the more adventurous and physically fit. While only a relatively small additional distance, travel beyond Lost Palms is exceedingly difficult, and should only be attempted by those comfortable with bouldering, scrambling and creative route finding. Join Mark Wheeler on another great adventure in the eastern area of the Joshua Tree National Park. Participants attending must be in good physical condition, and comfortable spending the day walking up to seven miles round trip to Lost Palms.
