The Hi Desert Ranch is located equidistant to the area's three most popular spots. Upon booking you’ll receive our Field Guide to Joshua Tree, which contains our favorite local spots and recommendations.

Top 3 Attractions

  • 1) Joshua Tree National Park: We recommend stopping off at the Visitor’s Center first, which is located in downtown Joshua Tree, a 20 minute drive from The Hi Desert. The National Park is another 20 minute drive beyond that.

  • 2) The Integraton in Landers: This historical structure is a resonant tabernacle and energy machine sited on a powerful geomagnetic vortex in the magical Mojave Desert. Group sound baths (must schedule ahead) allow visitors to have a fully-immersive experience. More information:

  • 3) Pappy & Harriet's Pioneertown Palace in Pioneertown: An 1870s frontier town–style movie set in the middle of the California desert that is not only a much loved, family-friendly destination, but also one of the most legendary indie music venues in the state.
