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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Joshua Tree National Park: Salvation Mountain (in Calipatria), General George S. Patton Memorial Museum (in Chiriaco Summit) and International Banana Museum (in Mecca). The adventure continues: take in nature's colorful creations at Cholla Cactus Garden, trek along 49 Palms Canyon Trail, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Eureka Peak, and identify plant and animal life at Barker Dam Trail.

To see ratings, traveler tips, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Joshua Tree National Park travel planner.

Expect a daytime high around 102°F in June, and nighttime lows around 73°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
