  • A must see while in Joshua Tree! This is close to the exit and so amazing to wander through. Be careful when walking around, because they are living plants. Definitely a stunning and striking sight for the eyes!
  • A really cool stop along the road. It was a little warmer than the rest of the park which can be pretty cold in winter. Wear proper shoes that won’t allow cactus needles to poke through!
  • An absolute MUST for your visit. Its a bit further south than the main attractions but totally worth the extra drive. The site is PACKED with Cholla cacti. I have never seen them before so it's a cool experience to be completely surrounded by them.
  • Amazing spot full of cactus! Amazing to see so many in one place. The backdrop is very nice as well!
  • Coolest cacti! This was one of my favorite pull out stops in the park. Very short walk, just get here early if you are here during peak season-it does get busy.
