Tips for visiting Joshua Tree in a day

These are some handy tips that will make sure your day trip to Joshua Tree runs as smoothly as possible.

  • Parking spots get snapped up early in the national park. Plan to arrive as early as possible so that you can visit the more popular landmarks.

  • In the same vein, you will need to arrive especially early during the summer months. It is essential to start walking trails no later than 9 am while the weather peaks. Ensure that you are clear of the hiking trails before it gets dark. 

  • Wear proper footwear such as hiking boots or regular sneakers. It’s very dusty and there are sharp stones that aren’t compatible with sandals or flip-flops!

  • Potable water is rare in the national park and you’re going to need to drink a lot of it! Take double the amount that you think you will need as well as some electrolytes to avoid dehydration. 

  • Pack a nutritious lunch and lots of snacks to keep your energy levels buoyant during the day. You’ll sweat a lot so salty snacks and protein-rich nuts and cereal bars are recommended as well as fruit.
