Other Names

Red Rock Road Exit, Lemmon Valley Motocross Track

Last Known StatusOpen

This area features an amateur motocross track and some surrounding desert trails. Most of the trails are a mix of sand washes and rocky, hard packed fire roads which are uninteresting, but it is possible to ride southeast, over the ridge and connect up with the trails in Hungry Valley.

The track is generally not groomed (except for races) so it is usually dry, dusty and very hard packed. Juniper trees are scattered throughout the staging area and around the track offering limited shade, but it’s still a good idea to bring a pop up tent or something similar.

The perimeter of the motocross track was fenced and gated a few years ago, so it’s possible that the area may close on short notice, likely during and after inclement weather.

The property has two gated entrances but recently we have received e-mails that the only entry is from the southwest corner off Lemmon Drive.
