Trail Information

Highlights

Just north of the famous King of the Hammers base camp is a not so secret play area. This large sand hill is a common go-to when wanting to get out and open up your vehicle. Since the base of this sand hill is very narrow, most people can't get the running space required to make it up. But once on top, you have a clear view of Johnson Valley. It is common for people to gather on top and enjoy the entertainment.
