Made a stop a Josua Tree NP on the way from LA to Kingman (AZ). Took the smaill trail in the Hidden Valley - very beautifull and hot - remember to bring water :-) The teenagers loved to climb the rocks.

The title of my review says it all... Joshua Tree is a one of kind desert destination that is very worthwhile. There is a great deal to see here, and well worth the 2hr drive that takes you straight through it. There are many places...More

Right in the heart of Joshua Tree National Park, do not miss this hidden gem, it is well worth a visit. Following the path at a leisurely walk might take less than one hour, and it is really gorgeous. If you chose to only walk...More

This place is the one we have continued talking about after we left. TripAdvisor doesn't lie-- it's #1. The scenery all over JTNP is unique, but the ambiance in this valley was truly unique. I loved the history (cattle?!), the fun rocks to climb around...More
