The Perfect Joshua Tree Day Trip from Los Angeles
There is so much more to Joshua Tree than the intriguing landscape that for decades has lured famous musicians on a spiritual pilgrimage.
Based on only having a day in Joshua Tree National Park, these are my picks for the best activities and sights to include on a day trip.
The most obvious thing to do in Joshua Tree is hiking. There are numerous trails throughout the park for all fitness levels. Although most of the day hikes tend to be on the more accessible side.
With the number of jumbo rocks around Joshua Tree National Park, it’s no surprise the park is a popular haven for rock climbers.
There are tons of interesting rock formations throughout Joshua Tree, but Skull Rock is one of the famous thanks to its uncanny resemblance to a skull.
Cholla Cactus Garden
Take a walk along the wooden boardwalk through the 10-acre cactus garden to admire some of the more alien-looking plants in the par.
At Keys View, you’ll get an expansive view of the Coachella Valley, San Andreas Fault, and on a clear day, you can see Mexico.
It offers a fascinating insight into the history of cattle ranching, mining, and homesteading in the Joshua Tree area.
