This easy stroll in the Mojave Desert/Colorado Desert transition zone of Pinto Basin leads through a dense stand of tall Bigelow cholla cactus. Joshua Tree National Park has a number of excellent self-guiding nature trails, and the Cholla Garden Nature Trail may well be one of the best. It is also the most remote, located on the western margins of lonely Pinto Basin in the center of the park, at the transition zone between the Mojave Desert and the lower—and hotter—Colorado (Sonoran) Desert. The trail, nearly level all the way, features numbered posts keyed to an interpretive pamphlet available for a small fee from a dispenser at the trailhead. Anyone traveling through this part of the park is urged to stop here. Stretch your legs, and enjoy this unusual stroll through a cactus garden in remote Pinto Basin.
