Covington Flats

Driving Tour in Joshua Tree National Park

Joshua trees grow throughout the northern park, but some of the biggest trees are found in this area accessed via La Contenta Rd, which runs south off Hwy 62 between Yucca Valley and Joshua Tree. For photogenic views, follow the dirt road 3.8 miles up Eureka Peak (5516ft) from the picnic area.

Passenger cars can usually handle these dirt roads, but check in advance to be safe.
