Joshua Tree National Landmark
This site is a Joshua Tree forest noted for its high number of trees. This area really allows people to get up close and personal with the strange, Dr. Seuss-like cactus trees. The Virgin river runs through west of the forest, creating a welcome oasis from the Mojave desert scenery. No facilities, but dispersed camping is permitted. If you are lucky you may glimpse the desert tortoise, but don`t disturb them or remove them, because they are a threatened species.
From St George, go south on the frontage road that parallels US 15, and turn west into the area.www.hobogrill.org
