Joshua Tree National Park

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.
When in Joshua Tree National Park, make a side trip to see Salvation Mountain in Calipatria, approximately Calipatria away. There's still lots to do: appreciate the views at Hidden Valley Nature Trail, explore the striking landscape at Skull Rock, trek along Lost Palms Oasis Trail, and stroll through Split Rock.

To find maps, reviews, photos, and tourist information, read our Joshua Tree National Park trip planner.

In December, daytime highs in Joshua Tree National Park are 61°F, while nighttime lows are 39°F.
