Want to know what it’s like riding a motorcycle through Joshua Tree National Park? In the Motorcyclist’s Review of the National Parks, I will talk about things to consider for motorcyclists planning a trip to Joshua Tree. Where to camp, what roads to ride, hazards to watch out for, where the best hiking is, possible side trips and places to stay in the area from hotels to free camping.

Joshua Tree National park is located east of Palm Springs, where the Mojave Desert meets the Colorado desert. There are great rock formations, beautiful desert vistas, scenic overlooks, tons of Joshua Trees, great twisty roads, some of the best camping around and incredible hiking for getting off the bike and stretching your legs. Come along for a ride and check out this awesome national park with me!

  1. Another nice video. I car camped there once several years ago and it was the one and only time I was unable to find a spot to hang my hammock. Fortunately I prepared for that possibility and brought a small tent. It is indeed a special place to camp with the light of the campfire dancing off the rocks. If I ever go again I'll bring climbing chocks to hang my hammock from the cracks in the rocks. 🙂 Keep up the good work.

  2. As an American living/riding in Europe just wanted to let you know I'm really enjoying watching your videos – especially the camping/motorcycle aspect you are taking on so hope that continues 🙂
    Keep up the great work and hope to see more in the future…and know (after doing a few videos for family) the hard work you put in is appreciated.


  3. Another great video Tim, looking forward to watching the rest of the series. With the way you present and edit, i'm sure you will build a great channel in time. keep up the good work.
