Skull Rock, Joshua Tree National Park
View Original Description
Skull Rock is a rock formation located in Joshua Tree National Park, United States, along the main east-west park road. A parking spot is located just across the road from the rock.
The formation was created by rain drops accumulating in tiny depressions and eroding the granite. As more rock eroded, more water accumulated, leading to more erosion until, as time passed, two hollowed-out sockets formed and the rock began to resemble a skull.
Skull Rock can also be reached on a 1.7 mile nature trail, which begins either just across from the entrance to Jumbo Rocks Campground or inside the campground, across from the amphitheater.
