The first time I visited Joshua Tree National Park, I really wasn’t expecting much.
I honestly didn’t think the California desert could be that impressive, because it’s mostly made up of dust and tumbleweeds, right?
But as soon as I started driving through Joshua Tree and saw the alien-like landscape outside my window, I realized just how wrong my initial assumptions were. And now Joshua Tree ranks among my favorite national parks in the world.
We spent three days exploring the desert, tackling sweaty Joshua Tree Park hikes, driving to scenic viewpoints, and watching rock climbers hang from staggering cliffs at seemingly impossible angles.
At the end of our visit, it was surprisingly difficult to leave the quiet solitude of the desert behind and head back to the hustle and bustle of civilization.
In this detailed visitor’s guide, we’ll walk you through some of the best Joshua Tree hiking trails, as well as the best places in the park for camping under bright constellations.
