I'm planning a trip to Joshua Tree NP for the end of February. My plan is to bike from Palm Springs to JTNP. Map My Ride directed me to take Annadale Ave out of Palm Springs which turns into Little Morongo Canyon Road and through Joshua Tree to the western park entrance. I read a post from 2010 about what to bike in the park, but haven't seen anything about riding TO the park.
Is this a good idea? Are there better routes? Is the southern route up through the park a better idea even though it's longer?
Any info is much appreciated!
