Joshua Tree National Park is located in south-eastern California, USA. It lies 240 km east of Los Angeles and is wedged between the borders of San Bernardino County and Riverside County. One can fly into the neighbouring Palm Springs or take the longer but cheaper route from Los Angeles.
This 800,000 acre park has two desert ecosystems—the Colorado Desert (which occupies the eastern half of the park and has creosote bush and cholla cactus) and the Mojave Desert (which is at a higher elevation and is home to the park’s namesake, the Joshua tree). The prime geological features of the terrain are hills of bare rock and loose boulders. 
The cool winter season experiences temperatures of around 15°C, while the hot summers have average temperatures crossing 38°C. Spring and fall are the most comfortable times to visit the park.

Reviews Joshua Tree National Park

Overall Guide : One of the most interesting attractions of the park is the Barker Dam which is a short trail away from the Hidden Valley parking area. The dam has Native American petroglyphs, good opportunities for rock climbing and a nature hike.... more There also regular tours to the park’s quaint Desert Queen Ranch and the queer stone formation called Skull Rock. Joshua Tree National Park is an excellent place for rock climbing, hiking and camping. Rocks are not more than 70 m in height, making the routes short and achievable. These activity areas can be easily accessed from some of the nine campgrounds in the park. Some of the popular hiking trails include Keys View (which has excellent views of the Chocella Valley and takes you to the park’s highest point, Inspiration Point), Ryan Mountain (offers a moderate hike and spectacular views at 1,600 m) and the 1,500 m Lost Horse Mine and Mountain (which has the remains of an old gold-processing mill).
