Joshua Tree is a wonderful place. There's great hiking, and from one spot there's a great view of the San Andreas fault. But my favorite thing in the park is the gigantic, other-wordly rocks that decorate its grounds. I once convinced a friend they were...More

Came here for the day and had a blast. It was crazy hot so didn't hike the Ryan mountain we had planned to but still saw some great sights and had a great time!

We went to Joshua tree national park to catch the sunset and the views were incredible. After sunset stay for the lights to go down so you can catch the amazing views of the stars.

My wife and I went to the park two days and spent a good bit of time there exploring. We chose to go in the evening and into the night to avoid the heat of the day. This allowed us to see the amazing sunsets...More

You can absolutely drive through the park. If you are planning to drive and get out to take pictures and to sightsee, I would say it doesn't matter what time you go through the park. I echo the recommendation that you bring... More
