Joshua Tree National Park is where the lower Sonoran Desert (like the one you see in movies) meets the rugged, higher altitude, Mojave Desert. This unique ecosystem is not only home to unique species like the Joshua Tree, but also home to unique and picturesque hiking trails for all levels. This hiking guide has not only lots of individual hikes you can do, but also some helpful insider tips on hiking at Joshua Tree.
