    Handicapped Accessibility

    Favorite thing: Four trails within the park: Bajada All Access Trail; Cap Rock Trail; Keys View; and the Oasis of Mara Trails are all handicapped/wheelchair accessible. The trail to Skull Rock is not accessible but you can see the rock from an accessible parking area. All visitors' centers, most roadside exhibits, and one campsite (site 122) at Jumbo Rocks Campground are also accessible.

    Favorite thing: Joshua Tree has a lot in the way of wildlife...it's on the Pacific Flyway, so you'll see lots of birds,lizard, coyotes ,a good population of Big Horn Sheep, and there are many kinds of snakes (lots of rattlesnakes, be careful). Take pocket guides, binoculars and lots of pictures

    Fondest memory: The beauty and the abundance of life

    Coyotes in the shade

    Favorite thing: Coyotes in Joshua Tree NP seem to have family structures similar to human's. I saw daddy and mommy coyotes with the little ones. When the weather is hot and there's no car in the parking lot, they just wait in the shade for the next customer.

    Hungry like a wolf

    Favorite thing: One of the larger animals in Joshua Tree NP is coyote. You'll find them begging for food around camp sites, parking lots, and picnic areas - wherever people or cars gather. They look like dogs and behave like dogs. But they are not tame, and won't (and shouldn't) get too close to human. I haven't heard any accidents involving coyotes.
