Joshua Tree at Night

I'm planning on visiting the park during my stay in Palm Springs next week. If would like to do a moderate hike, catch the sunset, leave the park to grab a bite then come back to see the stars once it's dark before heading back to Palm Springs.

To get all of this in - what time would I have to get to the park? Any suggestions on where to hike, distance it would take to get from hike to Keys View to catch the sunset? Then where to eat and where to park to watch the stars?

Is the park safe at night? I will be traveling solo.
