For ages 18+ or 30+, this course takes you backpacking through the vast expanses of the Mojave Desert. The rugged and beautiful Joshua Tree National Park receives more than a million visitors each year, but only a handful of those venture more than a mile from the parking lot—including you! With this up-close view, you’ll navigate through the rich ecosystem of birds and animals beside the parks’ namesake, the Joshua Tree, cholla cactus and palms. You'll get the opportunity to challenge your personal limits and refresh leadership skills while finding time to reflect.
