Jean Roach Dry Lake Bed

Monday, December 9, 2019

Other Names

Sheep Mountain, Hidden Valley, Mccullough Pass, Mojave Desert, Jean Dry Lake Area, Jean Dry Lake Bed

Last Known StatusOpen

This dry lake offers plenty of camping and staging opportunities for RVs and is a great place for novice riders to learn or practice their skills. There are some surrounding trails along the edges of the dry lake bed, particularly to the north, however most just consist of sharp rocks and deep sand. There is, however, typically less dust and wind here than at nearby Eldorado Dry Lake Bed, and the lake bed is a bit larger. You may encounter one of the dedicated rangers who enforce the shooting regulations and often check for spark arresters.
