Half-Day Guided Hike in Joshua Tree National Park

Half-Day Guided Hike in Joshua Tree National Park

star-5
35
I am a 20 year resident of the Mojave Desert and log 200 miles annually on foot within Joshua Tree National Park. Over the years and miles I've cultivated an awareness of landscape, ecological systems, and local culture that when contextualized by the trail becomes a narrative experience I'm eager to share. I landed in Joshua Tree after dropping out of college in 2001. Back then you arrived by chance or a friend of a friend said you had to check out the rocks, feel the energy, and camp under the stars. I fell in with the gathering characters, an assortment of dirtbag climbers, avant artists, practical new age visionaries, and entrepreneurs...an amalgam of identities that would go on to create the image of the High Desert that is so coveted today. I am legally permitted to guide within Joshua Tree National Park and happy to host you. I know my stuff and I want you to know it too.

Beautiful and relaxing experience in a unique Joshua Tree setting. Beautiful mountain landscapes all around you as you shoot bows into targets on Coyote Dry Lake Bed in Joshua Tree, CA. We start you with a beginner bow and a bucket of beginner arrows and you choose the distance you want to shoot at. We show you proper form to aim the arrows and how to shoot the arrows. You are on your own time and you can shoot the arrows at your own pace and at any distance you like. The distance ranges from 20 feet away to 100 feet away from the targets. Once you feel comfortable you can choose to move up and down the field and try farther and closer distances to test your accuracy. Once you become more precise at hitting the targets and shooting the arrows you can upgrade to a more advanced bow with more advanced heavier arrows. It gets fun to test yourself and see if you can hit the targets at a further distance. Very fun sport to learn.
