Joshua Tree National Park, Club day ride

April 8, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 7:00 pm


Club Day ride to Joshua Tree. This will be a 300+ mile round trip. We’ll have a picnick lunch in the park. We’ll stop at Subway’s in the city of Joshua Tree to buy lunch, or bring your own picnic lunch. In either case there’s no food for sale in the park. The entrance fee is $12 for a motorcycle. I’m hoping there will be lots of flowers from the storms we’ve had this year.

We’ll start at 9:00 am in Lake Elsinore and take the 74 E to Idlewild. Rest stop and gas up in Idlewild. We’ll take 243 N (a nice twisty mountain road) out of Idlewild to Banning. From Banning take 10 E to the 62, 62 NE into the city of Joshua Tree. We’ll purchase lunch and gas up here. Next we’ll head into Joshua Tree State Park. First stop is at at the Hidden Valley Picnic Area for lunch.This is about 4 hrs into the ride. We’ll take a 30-45 min break here. After Lunch we’ll take a short 10 min ride to Keys View to take in the panoramic beauty of the Coachella Valley. This is worth a 15-30 min break. We’ll meander back through the park to the Cottonwood Visitor Center for a last stop before leaving the park. We’ll head back to our starting point via Palm Desert. We’ll get gas in Palm Desert and then hop back to the 74 to Lake Elsinore where we started.

This will be a full day of riding. 9:00 am start, Lunch at 1:00, end at 6:00pm or 7:00pm. I have 5 breaks scheduled, including lunch.
