Joshua Tree N.P. Planning To Accommodate More Vehicles

The proposal includes moving the western ("Joshua Tree") entrance half a mile deeper into the park and widening the road so there are three inbound lanes there. They plan to build four ticket kiosks - there's just one now. Additionally, they want to increase the amount of space for parking cars at Barker Dam. The last time I was there, the Barker Dam parking lot was full, but legal parking was available nearby. To get to it you have to drive a short distance down a dirt road, and that adds about a half mile to your hike. There were only two cars in that legal parking lot after I parked there.
