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.
Joshua Tree National Park is known for nature, parks, trails, wildlife, and scenic drive. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the striking landscape at Keys View, admire the verdant scenery at Hidden Valley Nature Trail, tour the pleasant surroundings at Ryan Mountain, and don't miss a visit to Arch Rock.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, read our Joshua Tree National Park trip itinerary website .

In January, daily temperatures in Joshua Tree National Park can reach 62°F, while at night they dip to 40°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
