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 Wonderland of Rocks and Geology Tour Road. Step out of the city life by going to Box Canyon Road and Ladder Canyon Trail. And it doesn't end there: admire the verdant scenery at Lost Horse Valley, explore the striking landscape at Skull Rock, identify plant and animal life at Cottonwood Spring Oasis, and trek along Split Rock.

To see maps, more things to do, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Joshua Tree National Park day trip planning website.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 103°F, and evening lows to 78°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 6th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
