  • Distance from Wander Home: 12.9 miles (24 mins)

  • Hours: Always open 

  • Contact Number: 760-367-5500

If you and your furry friend are up for a day of hiking and adventure, Joshua Tree Park is just the place for you. Just make sure to pick up a park map showing all the dirt roads you and your pup can walk on.

While dogs are allowed in the park, they must be on a leash at all times and cannot be more than 100 feet from a road. Standard etiquette of picking up after your dog always applies.

The combination of elevation and desert air can quickly lead to dehydration so make sure to pack plenty of water for you and your pet.

Mission Creek Preserve

On the way, you'll pass historic structures and stunning desert plant communities, all with the backdrop of Southern California’s tallest peak in the background. Don't forget to pick up after your pup.
