A beautiful natural treasure. Joshua Tree National Park is home to a variety of activities, including hiking and off-roading. The natural rock formations are breathtaking and the change in vegetation as you hike up higher altitudes is surreal. And don't miss the star-gazing!
The Arch hike (.5) and the 49Palms Oasis hike (3m.) are moderate to easy hikes and it is possible to do both of them with time for lunch in the park, in one leisurely day.
Amazing landscape of the high desert. Lots of trails, places to rock climb among the granite cliffs, and amazing sunsets from a number of places.
If you are in the Palm Springs area, this national park is definitely worth a visit. It's about 45 minutes from Palm Springs, and you can see the highlights of the park in 3-4 hours.
