Overview

In the hills of Calico California near Yermo and Barstow is a famous trail network that has gotten its name for the right reasons. These hard trails were once a scenic drive back in the day but now are some of the hardest offroading around. On one such trail, Doran Canyon, there is a small area that is often overlooked. This area is perfect for the overlanders and people who want to camp away from everyone. The trail requires some decently hard wheeling to get to which means no one without a decent 4x4 can get to the area. The area is known as Doran Canyon Flats or Doran Flats in short.
