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: appreciate the views at Hidden Valley Nature Trail, trek along 49 Palms Canyon Trail, identify plant and animal life at Barker Dam Trail, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Split Rock.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Joshua Tree National Park trip itinerary planner .

In November, daily temperatures in Joshua Tree National Park can reach 70°F, while at night they dip to 46°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
