JOSHUA TREE IN ONE DAY – WHAT NOT TO MISS
WHEN TO GO
WHAT TO SEE
I recommend entering the park at Joshua Tree village off Rt 62, through the West Entrance Station, and exiting the park through:
- if you have less than a day, then exit through the North Entrance Station and into the town of Twentynine Palms. This way you are on one straight loop and can see multiple sights without veering too far off course.
- if you have 24 hours in the park, take the scenic route and exit through the South Entrance at the Cottonwood Visitor Center. This way you’ll get to experience the flora & fauna of the Colorado desert and see the Cholla Cactus Garden (which is top on my list when I return).
