Most people enjoy the beautiful rocks in Joshua Tree. If you enter from hwy 10, it is a long and tedious drive. If you enter from 29 palms, the rocks are more accessible and scenic. It is a beautiful park and much larger than you think. Explore when you have lots of time and the weather is good. The weekends... More

Plenty of parking even for RV's. Had a large picnic area and restrooms at trail head. Easy 1 mile loop with lots to see. Good story behind the name. Check it out

If Joshua Tree isn't already on your Bucket List, put it there. It's one of the most beautiful, unique geological treasures in the US. Leave early, pack a lunch, plenty of water and extra batteries for your camera. Joshua Tree itself is 60x30 square miles, so it is quite a lot to see if you have only one day. Do... More

The trail was clearly marked and the walk was not physically taxing. The rock formations are stunning and the light is incredible. We visited between Christmas and New Year so the valley was choc-a-bloc which was a shame as it ruined the remoteness of the place. A great place to go with children.

We went here after going to the Indian Canyons to hike. Joshua Tree costs $20 vs. $7 at Indian Canyon. Ir takes forever to get there and a boring drive. Once at the park, it's another 14 mi. Drive Inside to get to the trails. It all looks the same.

This is the second time I've done this trail this year. It's super easy to navigate and has pretty spectacular sights. This attraction is good for anyone so it is usually the one of the busiest in the park. Be forewarned that there are stone steps, they are not hard to climb and are the most challenging thing you will... More

This seems like the place to head to foe a picnic and hike. The hike is about 1.2 miles and fairly easy. We hiked a couple of spots but recommend this one for your first stop. Bring a coat as it got windy

This was our first hike in Joshua tree national Park and it was a great way to start. It was very popular so there were lots of people on the hike as well. It's a fairly flat hike and only about a mile loop. The trails are well-maintained and we enjoyed that part of the park.

This is a nice and easy hike that the entire family can enjoy. My kids had a wonderful time running from one tree to another. There are wonderful photo opportunities against diverse landscape and varieties of Joshua trees. I found this to be a particularly good place to take Joshua Tree silhouettes against Sunset. Also, was able to capture a... More
