Huge park with great scenery. Visited the abandoned stamping mill, about a 2 mile round trip easy hike, and worth the effort. Some relics of the past in the form of rusted out old trucks. Boulders of amazing size that if your brave enough to climb you can. The cactus garden is very unique. Can't take everything in on one... More

We visit this park every few years and although we've visited many times we always find something new to wonder at. This time the desert was in bloom so we saw lots of flowers, both on the Joshua Trees and the other plants within the park. Absolutely beautiful! Each time I leave this park I with I had spent more... More

We motorcycles through this Parc. Great roads, very respectful drivers. Many attractions for all ages from hiking, to wildlife watching or camping. Very clean and well maintained.

Beautiful National Park, still Joshua Tree is rather desolate in the winter months. Hiking, walking along the trails is easy and you're more or less alone, so you feel like it belongs to you. At one stopping point, we hiked and although there were two other vehicles in the area we never saw anyone else. With warm mild temperatures in... More

Just a very boring place. A few cool things but overall is very boring.In the winter there is no animals to see. We did not even see a bird in over 2 hours. There is not one thing that is cool about the mountains.

Seriously, when you drive through and see the rocks piled high, you begin to turn them into all sorts of images. As you continue to drive, the formations get bigger and more magnificent. There are a lot of easy walking trails for the whole family. Be sure to bring plenty of water and your lunch as you are going to... More

Having been to Bryce, Zion, Grand Canyon, etc., I keep expecting to be disappointed when I visit another national park, but I'm not. Unlike Bryce, Zion, etc., this park is not nearly as commercialized and they are unapologetic. There are no services in the park -- no restaurants, only a limited gift shop. AND they don't make it all that... More

My favorite adventures involve the outdoors and hiking. I had a once in a lifetime experience when I visited the park on a Sunday. Admission for the week was $15. There were numerous hiking trails ranging in levels of difficulty. The staff was extremely helpful and welcoming. My boyfriend and I stared with an easy hike at the damn then... More

What an incredible experience. The pictures I've seen don't do it justice. I was in awe of the rock formations and the vast land of trees and scrub. I wish we had visited at sunrise or sunset. I'm sure that would be an incredible experience.
