Hero: Red Mountain 1777
small-sr Icon

Following a legal access corridor through the middle of the fifty square miles of the Grass Valley Wilderness, RM 1777 provides a glimpse of the unspoiled Mojave desert. Surrounded by miles of creosote bushes, a lone joshua tree stands on the side of the trail, having established a foothold using the meager nutrients offered by sandy ground. The trail's 3650 feet elevation provides views northwest of the low-lying bright sandy expanse of Cuddleback Dry Lake embraced by Red Mountain further in the distance.

The remote vehicle-free area provides for quiet solitude to visit or camp. Dispersed camping in a vehicle is available when staying within 30 feet of the center line of the road and using pre-disturbed sites.

RM1777 is an easy trail and can be driven with a two-wheel drive with high clearance.
