California National Parks: Joshua Tree

Desert Play at Joshua Tree National Park


Joshua Tree National Park

Joshua Tree National Park

An 800,000-acre park, Joshua Tree National Park consists of the Mojave Desert, the Colorado Desert, and the Little San Bernardino Mountains. Established in 1994 and set in southern California’s desert region, this national park is encircled by cities such as Yucca Valley, Twentynine Palms, Indio, Palm Desert, and Palm Springs.

Hiking is of course one of the most popular activities in Joshua Tree National Park. Hikers may choose from several trails coursing through California’s scenic desert, including the eight-mile Boy Scout Hiking and Equestrian Trail, and the 35-mile California Riding and Hiking Trail for the real explorer.

If a multi-mile trek does not entice you, choose from 12 self-guiding nature trails such as the mile long Cottonwood Spring Trail, and the half-mile Oasis of Mara Trail.

Joshua Tree National Park features extreme form of recreation as well, such as backpacking, rock climbing, and mountain biking. For a more leisure adventure, visitors of the park may look forward to simple activities like bird watching, horseback riding, and stargazing come nightfall.


Choose from these California State Parks:

Yosemite Channel Islands Death Valley Joshua Tree
