This weekend my boyfriend and I wanted to go off roading and exploring for the day, but also near our place. We decided to head out to Joshua Tree, which is about a 2.5 hour drive from Los Angeles. While doing some research we found an easy trail to follow. We usually don’t like to off road by ourselves, just because it could be dangerous, but we did our research and found that this would be fine to do on our own. The trail is called the Geology Tour Road. It’s an 18 mile trail loop that goes into the center of the park. It give great views of the park and is an easy drive through the park. It is recommended that you use a four-wheel drive vehicle. But we think that you don’t necessarily need a four-wheel drive vehicle, but you definitely need a high clearance SUV. After we did the loop of the Geology Tour Road, we headed towards the Berdoo Canyon Road Trail. For this trail, you definitely should use a four-wheel vehicle. It does have some rough terrain that can be more difficult for none off-roading vehicles. At the end of this trail, is a sort of shooting range for amateur gun enthusiast, so you’ll see tons of shot gun shells everywhere. Overall, the trip out to Joshua Tree was amazing. I’ll definitely be back to do more exploring and hopefully some camping!
