Hello Experts, I'm planning to make a three to five hour visit to Joshua Tree Park in Early August, while staying in Indio at the Wyndham close to the 10FWY.
As it will be hot, I imagine most of the time I will be in the car, stopping often at various sites, taking photos, with maybe a few VERY short hikes. Suggestions and advice please:
Should I enter at the Southern Entrance and drive thru the park exiting on the North? Should I backtrack from Indio and enter at the North Entrance? Are most of the best sites in the North part of the park or the South? If it makes sense to backtrack to enter on the North and leave from the North as well, I'm fine with that. I want to maximize the best stops and views, and don't need to drive the length of the park unless that is the best recommended route and tour. Having said that, looking at the map, I'm way closer to the South Entrance.
Thank you and I'm looking forward to your responses.Edited: 21 July 2015, 06:10
