Free Entrance into Joshua Tree National Park August 25th

August 25th is FREE Entrance Day into ANY National Park and we’re lucky enough to have the Joshua Tree National Park in our back yard.

If you haven’t walked through the 550,000 acres of Joshua Tree National Park, there are 12 self-guiding nature trails to choose from.

There’s the Arch Rock which is only a 1/2 mile look featuring geology and a nature arch or a 1/4 mile trail on Cholla Cactus Garden featuring a dense concentration of Cholla Cactus. If you’re up for the trek, there’s Skull Rock – a 1 1/2 mile look through the Jumbo Rocks Campground featuring desert washes, boulder piles and Skull Rock.

You can also enjoy mountain biking on the extensive network of dirt roads.

Rock climbing has become extremely popular on the high desert monzogranite formations. Joshua Tree has more than 400 climbing formations and 8,000 climbing routes – however, you will want to be experienced before you start climbing the rocks.

Overnight stays are extremely enjoyable at Joshua Tree National Park. There are 9 campgrounds and backpack camping is also permitted.

You will want to plan your visit to Joshua Tree National Park – each season in the desert brings out different things to see. You will want to start at the Visitor Center to make sure you don’t miss anything. There are also Ranger guided activities which can help you when your first set out to see what Joshua Tree has to see.

Joshua Tree Visitor Center
Open All Year; 8 am to 5 pm
Located one block south of Hwy 62 (Twentynine Palms Highway) at 6554 Park Boulevard, Joshua Tree, CA 92252.

Also, you will want to make sure you bring plenty of water. The Park Rangers strongly suggest at lease one gallon of water per person just for drinking and if you’re going to be energetic, you’ll want a lot more than that.

The Desert is a wonderful place to live and have such great natural wonders so close.
