Tips

This trail is located inside Stoddard Valley OHV Area. The 54,679-acre park is open to cross-country travel for all off-road vehicles. Elevations range from 2,800 to 5,000 feet. The trail circles around the base of Watkins Peak, weaving in and out of numerous side canyons. Some good views from high points along the route but most of the trip is not scenic. Menacing desert terrain with numerous steep, rocky climbs. Large, sharp rocks require tight maneuvering, increasing the likelihood of tire damage. High clearance, skid plates and differential lockers required. No stock vehicles.

For information on Stoddard Wells OHV Area, contact Barstow Field office of the Bureau of Land Management at 760-252-6000.

This is a nasty trail in a remote and desolate area. We recommend you drive this route as part of the annual High Desert Round Up, usually held on Memorial Day Weekend. Very hot in summer. Carry plenty of water. Never drive this trail alone.

First to Review

This is a great place to go off road exploring, it’s a very big area. You will need a 4x4 vehicle in some areas as the dirt is very sandy. Please don’t liter and help keep these trails clean for everyone’s enjoyment.
