Be Prepared
Though beautiful, the desert environment can be harsh and unforgiving. Being prepared is the key to a safe and fun desert adventure.
  • Always keep an ample supply of water with you while traveling through the park, whether driving or hiking. We recommend a minimum of one gallon of water per person, per day; hikers and cyclists should carry two gallons per person, per day.
  • Avoid strenuous activity during times of extreme heat.
  • Protect yourself from the sun by wearing sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat.
Remember, your safety is your responsibility.
