We brought our 4 month old daughter camping for the 1st time. It was just what you'd expect. Fun, awe inspiring, tiring, smoky smelling and spent a lot of time paying attention to our daughter since she was feeling insecure out of the house. Wouldn't have it any other way, this is camping and hiking (the basics that help keep... 更多
Joshua Tree is not well known, enough. First tip though - there are two northeast entrances. Avoid the one closest to Palm Springs as the crowds hit there and the rangers do not process the crush well. Go one entrance further or enter from the south. The park is loaded with amazing rock formations, many climbable. the Joshua Tree "forests"... 更多
Joshua Tree Park is so beautiful and rugged, with it's expansive landscape and hills of stacked boulders, dotted with Joshua trees and other desert vegetation. You can climb the rounded boulders, go on the numerous trails, or simply drive through stopping at different spots to enjoy this unique park. We found the best rock formations and trees along the Park... 更多
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 !
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
