Littlerock OHV Area

Saturday, December 23, 2023

Other Names

Angeles National Forest, Little Rock OHV Area, Santa Clara / Mojave Rivers Ranger District, Rocky Point, Alimony Ridge OHV Route, Little Rock Creek, Little Rock Reservoir, Littlerock Dam, Mt. Emma, Santiago Canyon

Last Known StatusTemporarily Closed  (due to dredging operations)

This popular offroad area offers about 6 miles of trails that begin near the Santiago Canyon picnic area and heads east past the Little Rock Dam. The trails are narrow and rugged but provides nice views of the surrounding mountains and reservoir.

A large pit area is also available and is popular with the 4x4 crowd which can get very muddy during wet weather conditions. The dam also has several picnic areas that have shade gazebos and restroom facilities.

An Adventure Pass is required for all vehicles entering which must be purchased prior to entry since there is no self pay kiosk (the nearest vendor that sells the pass is Walmart). This area is only open for riding during daylight hours.
