Box Canyon, in the Newberry Rodman Mountain BLM sub-region of the southern California Mojave Desert, is a hidden gem. Some even call it the "Grand Canyon Of The Rodmans" for its high vertical canyon walls. The walls were created by an ancient lava flow that cut through this region thousands of years ago.
Be aware that temperatures typically exceed 100-plus degrees in the summer months. However, the high canyon walls of Box Canyon can provide a cool safe haven of shade during the morning or late afternoon hours.
Federally protected desert tortoises are located in the Rodman Mountains Wilderness Area. Please stay on the designated trails and stay away from these protected tortoises
