Hero: Spooners
small-sr Icon

Spooners, a Johnson Valley trail named after a couple of guys who got stuck on the trail and had to spoon to survive overnight cold temperatures, is one of the original Johnson Valley rock crawling trails. Located near Outerlimits, this nearly 3-mile long trail is one of the furthest trails from Means Dry Lake and is positioned directly against the military boundary on its northern end. With large boulders over 4 feet round, waterfalls over 5 feet tall, and a difficult S-Turn obstacle that can quickly end your day with one wrong move, Spooners is a trail only for the bravest and built. This trail is best suited for modified vehicles with lifts, larger tires, skid plate protection, and locking differentials. Body damage and mechanical failure are likely.

Even though the trail got its name from two guys camping on it, users should be aware that this trail does not offer any suitable camping options.
