Featured above is the current edition being sold; DanaMite actually prefers the look of the less-digitized version Рthe popular 2nd edition (printed in 2000), shown below. Easier to read maps, less text, less information overall, less busy looking.

Joshua Tree National Park Map

NPS
Both Tom Harrison and NatGeo make awesome recreation maps of this popular SoCal desert. Numerous campgrounds, hiking trails, dirt roads, historic mines, and plenty rock climbing spots. In 1934, Joshua Tree was designated as a National Monument and then later became a National Park in 1994. The local Palm Springs Desert BLM office has paper maps that cover the desert canyon areas near Interstate 10.
