  • We were hiking at the Cottonwood Springs Trail. There were palm trees with water underneath: An Oasis I liked the pal trees. They were very close with each other. We had fun exploring. A must see!  more »
  • Beautiful stop off even though being the height of summer there was no oasis as such. The palms and area were very cool still though so worth a visit in contrast to the arid desert.  more »

  • Made an impromptu stop to see the Joshua Tree National Park and definitely worth it. Stopped by the Visitors Center and got my pass. The employees were very friendly and informative. Provided us with area and trail maps. Went on to the Cottonwood trail/camp area and enjoyed the beautiful scenery and adventured the trail with the family. Be sure to bring water, sunscreen, and a hat for the heat. Would love to visit again and explore more of the park.
  • Took the lost palm oasis trail with my siblings and boyfriend and it was an amazing time! Beautiful scenery and the desert heat is dry and bearable if well prepared. Really helpful guy in the gift shop and cute post cards.
