Highlight: Thermal Canyon Road
Thermal Canyon Road is on the southern edge of Joshua Tree National Park and provides pristine desert scenery. This area is protected and largely untouched since Joshua Tree National Park became a protected area in 1936 when it first became the Joshua Tree National Monument. Thermal Canyon Road begins on the sandy desert floor and rises slowly while meandering 6 miles through rocky canyons and opening to views of the distant Hexie Mountains. Far from anywhere, this road provides solitude, quiet, and no phone service. Nestled in a hot, dry desert caused by the rain shadow of the San Jacinto Mountains to the west, you will be surprised at the abundance of life that has made this particular canyon their home.
