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.
Kick off your visit on the 15th (Sat): make a trip to Arch Rock, appreciate the views at Hidden Valley Nature Trail, and then identify plant and animal life at Barker Dam Trail. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 16th (Sun): admire the natural beauty at Cholla Cactus Garden, then take in the dramatic natural features at Keys View, and then take in the dramatic natural features at Skull Rock.

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

In June, daily temperatures in Joshua Tree National Park can reach 102°F, while at night they dip to 73°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
