Located about 12 miles from the Joshua Tree National Park’s main entrance is your first stop - Cholla Cactus Garden.
Other than the cactus, the massive rock formations will blow your mind at the Joshua Tree.
This is a popular rock-climbing area, and perfect to stop and admire the beauty of the national park.
Barker Dam is located just two miles from Hidden Valley. There is a popular 1.1 mile loop trail (which is a crowd puller).
Finally end the one day Joshua Tree itinerary with sunset views at the Keys View.
