Joshua Tree: NATIONAL PARK TOUR will be a fun companion experience as you travel through the Joshua Tree National Park. We have you start at the Visitor Center on Park Boulevard in Joshua Tree and end at the 29 Palms Inn. Our whole goal in this Tour is to make the Park just a teensy bit more FUN! As you visit each unique location, we will challenge your mind with puzzles, ciphers, clues, and riddles. Solve each one to move on to the next location or choose to skip the clue and move on. We make sure you will have fun and complete the WHOLE adventure.
The Park is vast and beautiful; however, you will be driving on a National Park Service (NPS) controlled road through a National Park. There aren’t many areas you can go on your own and they lead you through the Park from place to place.
That’s why we want to take a second and suggest you go on our other adventure as well:
Joshua Tree: THE SECRET TOUR
or Joshua Tree: eTOUR GUIDE
Either of these two will take you to 33 SECRET
locations OUTSIDE the National Park. And we mean SECRET
! Do you want to see the airport Howard Hughes built to visit his test pilot best friend who was living under the largest boulder in the world and was also building the Integratron, a building that was going to teleport them to Venus? (Breathe Haha!) Do you want to stand in the middle of a 1200’ crop circle? Do you want to stand where John Lennon of the Beatles, Jim Morrison of The Doors, the Eagles, The Foo Fighters, and U2 stood while they visited Joshua Tree? Go on THE SECRET TOUR!
Back to the NATIONAL PARK TOUR!
If you plan on driving through the entire Joshua Tree National Park (JTNP), it will cost you $30 at the gate and take you 171 minutes WITHOUT STOPPING ONCE (with zero traffic)! There are also 54 locations where you can stop inside the JTNP. YES! Fifty-Four stops and that is only INSIDE the Park! We take you to a few locations OUTSIDE the park as well! If you do a little bit of simple math, and stopped for 10 minutes at ALL of them, you’re looking at 540 minutes PLUS 171 minutes of driving. That’s 12 hours total! Hahahahaha! People do not realize how HUGE this Park really is.
Adding in hikes would add even more HOURS and HOURS!
BUT OF COURSE IT IS WORTH EVERY SECOND OF IT!
You will receive a PDF file with your purchase. We went through and created this stop-by-stop checklist for you to have in hand as you make your way through this MASSIVE National Park. We include ALL of the locations, but chose the most notable and photogenic locations for you to experience. If the location is BOLD on our list, that means it is one of our chosen 24 stops! Our checklist will help you know where you are throughout your day as well so you can gauge how far you are into the park and how much longer you will be without cellular service. Hahahaha! YES, there is ZERO cellular service inside the Park so having our checklist will be worth a million dollars! Haha!
ENJOY THIS GLORIOUS NATIONAL PARK! We think it is the most beautiful of the 61 National Parks across the United States of America. Remember the miles and minutes we have on this checklist are as if you drove non-stop. You will be making stops along the way and solving clues and puzzles and ciphers at the stops we direct you to. Add to that all of the stops YOU make on your own and it becomes a VERY FULL DAY.
Take as many pictures as possible. Your friends and family and social media followers will absolutely love the extreme backdrops and un-explainable objects and local people you will encounter along the way. We promise you... your social media is going to absolutely explode. We guarantee that you will be amazed.
