Johnson Valley-Rattlesnake Canyon

Home of much of southern California’s desert racing, this area offers widely varied riding experiences ranging from smallish sand dunes to massive rocks to dry lake areas.

The southeastern riding section sports a large mass of hills that is best for expert riders – which is known to rock-crawling fans as the “Hammers.” This area gets attention every year for a 10-day event what was attended by 80,000 off-road fans in 2022 called “King of the Hammers,” known as the toughest off-road race in the world.” To the north of the Hammers, riders will find ATV riding trails ideal for novice and intermediate riders that includes some small dune riding. Keep in mind that the temperatures often range from 100 to 120 degrees.
