    Though there is a great view when you get to the top, the trail is not one of my favorites. I guess due to the heavy traffic, the trail has been improved and maintained. There are to many steps and st...  more »

    My husband (conveniently named Ryan) and I did this hike in the afternoon. We have hiked CA national parks quite a bit recently, so I think I was expecting a different kind of view at the top. I feel ...  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.
