Description

Chesler Park is the most popular destination in the Needles. It is a 600 acre area of gentle grasslands that is especially pleasant amidst the surrounding expanses of desert red rock canyons. (Because of its popularity camping is by permit only.) The Chesler Park Loop circles Chesler Park meadow. The southernmost portion of the loop consists of the Joint Trail, a fantastic 1/2 mile long, extremely narrow crack through 50 foot tall cliff walls.
