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.
On the 30th (Sat), hike along Split Rock, steep yourself in history at Keys Ranch, and then look for all kinds of wild species at Barker Dam Trail. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: get all the information you need at Cottonwood Visitor Center, explore the fascinating landscape at Cottonwood Spring Oasis, and then take an in-depth tour of General George S. Patton Memorial Museum.

To see ratings, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Joshua Tree National Park road trip tool .

In March, plan for daily highs up to 75°F, and evening lows to 50°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
