Ryan Mountain is a 5,456-foot-high (1,663 m) mountain in Joshua Tree National Park. The trail to the peak is a strenuous hike, ascending 1,050 feet (320 m) in 1.5 miles (2.4 km).[1] Ryan Mountain is a popular attraction in the park, because it leads to panoramic views of Pinto Basin, Lost Horse Valley, Queen Valley, and Pleasant Valley.[2] It is one of the locations in Joshua Tree that features abundant lichen populations.[3] It is named after J.D. Ryan, a wealthy rancher and early mining operator in the park.[4]
