Joshua Tree


Joshua Tree National Park reveals the spectacular beauty and diversity of the desert. A geological wonder, the park is internationally recognized as a rock-climbing Mecca. If your day trip extends over night, there are nine campgrounds to choose from. Bring a telescope for spectacular stargazing and a closer look at astronomical wonders. Hiking trails and backcountry camping are great ways to experience a desert solitaire. Cruising the park by the seat of a mountain bike is an easy way to explore the extensive network of unpaved roads that provide safer transit than the busy main paved roads.

The park has ten mountains that tower above 5,000 feet in elevation and five fan palm oases. A note of caution, the desert can be a dangerous place when caught unprepared, so carry water with you at all times. Begin your adventures by stopping at the visitor center where park staff can provide park maps, tours, and other useful information.
