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, don't miss a visit to Arch Rock, appreciate the views at Hidden Valley Nature Trail, and admire the natural beauty at Cholla Cactus Garden.

To see reviews, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Joshua Tree National Park online attractions planner .

If you are flying in from Mexico, the closest major airports are Palm Springs International Airport, San Bernardino International Airport and Ontario International Airport. In December in Joshua Tree National Park, expect temperatures between 19°C during the day and 4°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
