Description:

The 189,000-acre Johnson Valley Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Recreation Area offers outstanding trails for competitive off-highway motorcycle racing, enduro and trial events, and day play-riding. Sloping bajadas, narrow canyons, flat dry lakes, sand dunes, and twisting trails through low rocky mountains provide a variety of experiences for all levels of riders. The Johnson Valley Yucca Rings Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC), Soggy Lake Creosote Rings ACEC, Cougar Buttes' huge rock slabs, ruins of historic mines, range cattle, and a wide variety of desert animal and plant life offer unique nature and touring experiences.

Directions:

The riding area is off Highway 247 (Old Woman Springs Road) and Camp Rock Road, about 55 miles southeast of Barstow (CA) or about 25 miles east of Victorville (CA). Most visitors access the area off Camp Rock Road driving north off of Highway 247. Staging for many competitive events is at Anderson Dry Lake, about 10 miles north of Highway 247 just east of Camp Rock Road. There is also access north of Highway 247, driving east toward Yucca Valley, at Bessemer Mine Road (to get to Soggy Dry Lake) and Boone Road. All of these roads are graded dirt roads.
