  • Visited mid week so parking and access was not a problem. Parked in White Tank Campground (note to self - must camp here someday!). I can see that parking would be hard to come by on busy weekends! Pi...  more »
  • Every tour website and tour book says this is a place not to miss. Well, you will if you go in the middle of the day and can't find a parking spot. Either squeeze the car in or be rude and park in fro...  more »
  • Start in the White Tank campground, trail begins at site 9 of the campground. Fairly easy to find and very easy to hike there. As it happens, we saw a large iguana and a small lizard near the arch sit...  more »

  • There is a short 2/10 mile (0.3 km) round-trip hike to get to one of the few arches found in this park. The arch is not huge so don't expect it to be like the ones found in Utah. The arch has a couple of boulders laying against it you may not get any fantastic natural frame pictures. Still, an interesting site for a small effort. As with all hikes in Joshua Tree, bring water, wear sunblock and a hat as there is little or no shade depending on the time of day.
  • Eh. It's cool and short, but cooler places in the park. Wish I would have come at night like someone else on this suggested.
  • An amazing place to go at night. The view in the back drop of the milkway galaxy looks brilliant.
  • Amazing park with marvelous views of huge stones, exhibits and camping places.
  • Fun & easy to climb at sunset or sunrise when it's not too hot.
