As you head South on Pinto Basin Road you’ll see – as if out of nowhere – these amazing yellow cactuses. There are thousands of them everywhere!! Most Cholla are found in Mexico, so it’s a treat to see them here but be warned. First, you’ll see signs for bees and they are not kidding. The cactus…

Situated inside Joshua Tree National Park, this alien landscape sits on a striking site with a beautiful view of a desert valley to the east. Be sure to look, but don't touch!

very cool, but don't get too close or you will learn the hard way, like I did :(

If you're up for a bit of a drive then the Cholla cactus garden is a must see! Try to catch it at sunrise or sunset, the chollas glow in the sunlight. It's a bit of a trek and down toward the Palm Springs end of the park but totally worth it once you're standing in a sea of chollas!

“Famous photo spot for a few decades now. You’ll have to wait in line to get your pic with the Skull Rock, but it’s pretty worth it. ”

“Perhaps nowhere else in the park is the almost comic book landscape more finely illustrated than at Skull Rock. You may see faces and images in the rock formations that dominate the park, but at Skull Rock it takes very little imagination to see the skull shape peering out of the boulder-strewn rubble. This huge, naturally sculpted rock is located right beside the road, and it always draws a crowd. The whole area around this roadside stop is interesting, with an expanse of rolling rock piles, great for walking or light scrambling. Remnants of trails run through the area, but many people just wander about, finding high points for lookouts, sunning themselves on the slabs of rock, or simply taking a break. Across the street is a 1.7-mile hiking trail through rocks and shrubby vegetation with a few Joshua trees scattered around.”

“Great Photo Op not too far from the start of the trail. Arch Rock Nature Trail is a 1.2 mile out and back trail located near the north entrance that features a large arch that some say look like two elephants. This trail is good for all skill levels. Park near the campsite, not in the campsite to save yourself a walk.”

Natural Feature
“This short trail (0.5 mi/0.8 km) is located in Twentynine Palms at the Joshua Tree National Park Oasis of Mara Visitor Center. The oasis was first settled by the Serrano who called it Mara, meaning "the place of little springs and much grass." Legend holds they came to the oasis because a medicine man told them it was a good place to live and that they would have many boy babies. The medicine man instructed them to plant a palm tree each time a boy was born. In the first year, the Serrano planted 29 palm trees at the oasis. The palms also provided the Serrano with food, clothing, cooking implements, and housing. In addition, the palms are habitat for a wide variety of desert creatures.”
