Joshua Tree National Park

Joshua Tree National Park ©
Joshua Tree National Park takes its name from the Joshua tree, a twisted, spiky tree with bayonet-shaped leaves at the top that's one of the few plant species hardy enough to thrive in the extreme climate of the Mojave Desert.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Keys Ranch and Ladder Canyon Trail. Take a break from the city and head to Box Canyon Road and Wonderland of Rocks. Explore Joshua Tree National Park's surroundings by going to International Banana Museum (in Mecca) and General George S. Patton Memorial Museum (in Chiriaco Summit). And it doesn't end there: cruise along Geology Tour Road, appreciate the views at Lost Horse Valley, admire nature's extreme beauty at The Pinto Basin, and make a trip to Cap Rock at Joshua Tree.

To see photos, maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Joshua Tree National Park trip planner.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 103°F, and evening lows to 78°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
