Joshua Tree Park is unique. Truly beautiful and unspoiled and hardly another tourist in sight. Words cannot describe it fairly and not even photos do it justice. A must visit !
There is something truly unique about this area. Rugged, rocky landscape dotted with Joshua trees and cholla cactus. Imagine traveling over that terrain years ago!
The Joshua trees are only found in the Mojave desert. The landscape is a wonderful mix of granite "sculptures", sand, desert vegetation and fauna, and beautiful views. The hikes are easy to arduous, something for everyone. Even if all you do is drive through the park, make this part of your trip to Palm Springs area.
A trip to Palm Springs is not complete without a visit to Joshua Tree. Plan to spend a day at the park. We recommend entering via the south Cottonwood Visitors Center entrance off of I-10, then driving through the park and exiting through one of the north entrance/exits and taking route 62 back toward Palm Springs. This way, you will... 更多
I had been reluctant to go as it is about an hour drive each way, but boy was I glad I did and I would go again. It is a beautiful park. So much to see. Our family enjoyed scrambling on the boulders. It was my 10 year old son's highlight of our week trip in Palm Springs. Great for... 更多
This was a fantastic day trip for the whole family. The kids enjoyed climbing the rock formations and different climates from South to North are incredibly interesting to see change on a 50 mile drive. The rangers at the Joshua Tree station were very accommodating and made the visit very family friendly.
It was amazing to see the sunset with the boulders and very unique trees. It as very windy, so a very sturdy tripod is needed. The view was amazing, and highly recommend it- especially during the dawn and dusk.
As you travel through the park, several distinct desert landscapes emerge, each with different flora, fauna, and rock formations. We approached the park from the south, so we didn't see the famed Joshua trees until near the end of our route. We were here just for the day -- not for camping -- and we took a slow, leisurely drive... 更多
There is a fee to get into the park--it's by carload, not person. Make sure you have a lot of water. They only have water at the ranger station. This park is where the Colorado and the Mojave Deserts meet. It's amazing how different they are. We didn't hike a lot, but decided to drive through both deserts and just... 更多
I visited Utah back in July and was overwhelmed by the beauty of Arches National Park. Determined to find something similar right in my own backyard, I researched and found Joshua Tree. I have lived in the desert for the last 17 years and had no clue of this marvelous playground. The weather was perfect, and we were able to... 更多
