Saturday, June 13, 2015

Alt Names

Afton Canyon, Cave Mountain, Mojave Desert

Last Known StatusOpen

This secluded area offers several miles of sand washes and desert trails that lead to a small but fun dune area. There is no shade and there are no amenities, but due to the remoteness there are no crowds either. Access is free and overnight camping is permitted. Vegetation mainly consists of scattered scrub brush. The Mojave Road can be accessed from this area which provides direct access for street legal vehicles into the Mojave National Preserve.
