Gatos Trail is a custom built, destination recording studio offering full music production services and lodging for bands, songwriters, artists & producers.

Joshua Tree and the surrounding high desert areas are world renown for their beauty and creative inspiration, at Gatos Trial you can enjoy a distraction free environment to make full use of your experience in the desert.


We are only minutes from Joshua Tree National Park, Pappy & Harriets, Downtown Joshua Tree, Old Town Yucca Valley and in close proximity to all other visitors points of interest. We can recommend and set up appointments to area events and activities if there’s something you’re interested in doing outside of your session. And although our location is in a pristine, remote area of the high desert, we are only 40 minutes from Palm Springs International Airport, 1.5 hours from Ontario International Airport and 2.5 hours from Los Angeles International Airport, hosting clients from all around the world.
