  • Easy access from the main road in Joshua Tree but it is very busy as a result. Easy trail and very fun to explore the rocks. Loved it....

  • We got there very early, there were only a couple of people there, was able to take a picture of the skull rock without any visitors.

  • Loved Joshua Tree National Park. The rangers are super friendly and full of information. The park is very accessible, allowing some key features, such as this one, to be visible with just just a short walk. That being said, it is worth getting out of the car and walking around to explore. (All these pictures were from a 30 minute walk around Skull Rock.) Just be sure to take water and find your way back. It is also great people watching with visitors from around the world.
  • Incredibly accessible, hence will be super crowded. Still worth a quick stop and a picture - you'll have other people in your Pic, just use Magic Eraser in the Pixel 6 to remove them! There are many rocks to climb here, but you should move to a different location that will be more spread out and have fewer people.
