Felt like I was on Mars! I've been twice, Highly recommend Joshua Tree in general, I'm more of of a mountain climber, even though I now live in Kansas, but I love the desert. We went and it was pretty secluded if you know the right spots. Beautiful rocks and sunsets. Lots of kangaroo rats so pack your food properly. Watch out for the cholla! I recommend climbing some of the rocks like Mount Mel.
Great place to camp, yoga on the rocks, hiking
We went off one of the trails at Indian Cove Nature Trail by the restroom closest to all the rock formations. We didn't see the trail with the wooden posts until after we hiked the rock structure one. I really loved all the cool rocks. We learned so much by visiting the Ranger station first. We learned about the other locations in Joshua Tree National Forest. a little history from the newspaper we received too. loved it.
Beautiful in April. Spring has sprung
This is a go to hike for us. It is short and very pretty. There are lots of other trails close by and lots of easy boulder climbing. The other end of the campground will get you to rattlesnake canyon, which is also fun. We usually do both, and have lunch at either rattlesnake canyon, or an empty campsite.
Just walk around the campground near sunset. It is a beautiful place! Friendly climbers too :)
interesting nature trail. not much to it but some informative markers. i did this after doing the boy scout trail so i was a bit tired.
Pixie Rock and BillBoard Buttress

Great campgrounds and one of the few in the park with close access to water.
