Hero: Cuddeback Lake Basin
small-aa Icon
The Cuddeback Lake Basin is a long, flat bed of dry clay, dirt, and sand in the West Mojave Desert, just north of Fremont Peak. Part of the Red Mountain BLM subregion, this basin stretches over 5 miles long and 2 miles wide. As you speed across this vast, open plain you feel and hear the brittle, dry clay cracking and compressing under your tires as a continuous dust cloud spews out behind you. Cuddeback Dry Lake offers an uncommon off-road opportunity to speed across an unusually flat stretch of non-paved ground. This is an experience that every off-roader should try.
