Best hike & sights in Joshua Tree?

We are in Palm Dessert & want to do a hike at Joshua Tree Wednesday. Any suggestions for the top areas to hike/visit? 3-5 miles preferably.

Thank you!

Check out my trip report from Friday if you want to see some blooms.

My favorite hike is Ryan Mountain for the 360 views, or for an easy walk Wall Street Mill for the relics.Lost Horse Mine or Pine City are others I like. If you head way south Mastodon Peak with Salton Sea views.

One of the highlights of JTNP is the large boulders. I'd choose a place around there for hiking.
