    It was a nice hike and we had some nice views. Our highlight was seeing "Shelly" a black turtle my son named. They are rare to see, so this was truly the highlight moment of this hike!  more »

    This is a moderately strenuous hike, with a warning sign at the entrance that "people have died on this trail". Although the hike is an out and back hike of 1.5 miles each way, you are walking up and ...  more »

Where to stay in Joshua Tree National Park

If you want to spend the night in Joshua Tree National Park, grab a tent and head for one of the numerous campgrounds scattered throughout the park. Some campgrounds feature a reservation system while others operate on a first-come, first-served basis. A couple also provide potable water, but most do not. To sleep on a mattress and pillow with a roof over your head, stay in one of the towns surrounding the park. The towns of Joshua Tree and Twentynine Palms offer a number of inns and motels in a tranquil desert setting. West of the park, the options expand into the resort area of Palm Springs. Here you'll find everything from high-end spas and resorts to chain hotels, small inns, and bed and breakfasts. The park is situated about two hours from Los Angeles (if there's no traffic), making a day trip from the city another possibility.
