This is pretty much the only topo map widely available for Joshua Tree NP, and is good enough for a successful trip.

The good: It has a lot of trails and landmarks, including some that are not on the National Park Service brochures, and I made good use of this. The material is durable and waterproof (you might not think you need the latter feature in the desert, but I got rained on for most of a day on my trip).

The not-so-good: The countour interval is probably a little too big. Oftentimes you can find yourself walking in a canyon from which you cannot see out, but on the map it appears as flat ground. This is especially problematic on some of the trails not mentioned or maintained by NPS; the map also doesn't make a distinction between these trails and the official ones, so you may find yourself somewhere that NPS doesn't really support.

I'm also used to some of the other NatGeo maps that have more trail/hike summaries and info about the park's landmarks; this map has a little safety/planning info, but nothing really useful for determining what to see. One entire side of the map is dedicated to the Eastern half of the park, which doesn't really have much of interest to the average person, so this may have been a good spot to add some insets or trail notes.

Overall, I'd definitely recommend it, but you may want to couple it with a guidebook or recommendations from a ranger so you know how to get the most of your trip.

For a map that says it is regurlarly updated it is wrong way to often. I live about 30 min from this park and go hiking every weekend. There are trails on this map that don't exist, ones that exist that aren't marked, and the distances are often off by varying degrees. It has one job and does not do it well and for the price especially that is unacceptable. Fortunately it has not caused safety issues but when planning trips I use it more of a guide than gospel.

Just having returned from Joshua Tree National Park, I found this map a generally good all purpose map for roads and major points of interest. Clearly better than a schematic map online (while the park may say they have some maps or brochures, none were available at the trail heads). This map does not have all of the turnouts or points of interest. You can't use this for navigating with map and compass in the back country; the scale is too big. Do you absolutely have to have this map to visit the park? No. Is it really helpful? Yes.

Complete waterproof map with basic background information about the area, the two parts of the park (more remote, inaccessible East & more visited, accessible West) spread over the two sides. Shows contours, trails, paved and partly paved (or gravel/dirt) roads, as well as amenities/services. Feels good and folds easily. Good companion to a trip and guidebook.

The map is highly detailed with important landmarks clearly marked and distances (in miles) between various points on the map. Having the distances between points is especially important when planning hikes. The map is waterproof and tearproof making it easy to carry and pull out of the pack whenever it is needed. This map is much better than what is provided by the National Park Service. Highly recommend to have this for full enjoyment of the park and it is an awesome park!

Love NGM maps as they are so detailed and helpful for hiking, etc. Purchase them for all the planned vacations as they are full of information and correspond nicely with hiking books and hiking programs like All Trails.

Not as detailed at it seems. I walked a trail loop twice without ever finding a turn off for a trail depicted on the map. None of the park maps themselves showed the trail either. Maybe that trail has closed and this map isn't updated?
A great map for exploring the more remote areas of Joshua Tree. It is coated, so it hasn't been torn, even with being shoved in and out of a backpack numerous times. It's easy enough to read, though can be a bit large when unfolded. Either way, a must have if you plan on trekking around the desert.
