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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Wonderland of Rocks and East Jesus. Explore Joshua Tree National Park's surroundings by going to Mecca (Box Canyon Road, Salton Sea State Recreation Area, &more) and Ruins of Bombay Beach (in Bombay Beach). Next up on the itinerary: admire all the interesting features of Geology Tour Road, explore the fascinating landscape at Cottonwood Spring Oasis, steep yourself in history at Keys Ranch, and hike along Split Rock.

For maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Joshua Tree National Park visit planning site.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 101°F, and evening lows to 76°F.
