Highlights

Highlight: Hamburger Hill
Only 20 miles from downtown Lucerne Valley - Hamburger Hill offers a great escape with stunning sunset views for the fortunate few who can complete the trail in time to see the sunset. Hamburger Hill lies within the Ord Mountain Subregion. This vicinity is known for its off-highway vehicle (OHV) recreational opportunities. Heavy recreational use is expected in, and is appropriate to, the Stoddard Valley and Johnson Valley OHV Recreational Areas, located on either side of the Ord Mountain region. Much history can be appreciated in this region as the first mining claims in the Ord Mountains were established as early as 1876. Heavily mined for gold and silver in the early 1900's it was also used during World War I and World War II for its rich copper ore to support the war efforts.
