Highlight: AC9476
AC9476 is part of a network of trails in this area at the base of the Cady Mountains, east of the small desert community of Newberry Springs, California. This scenic off-road trail includes surrounding hills of dark ancient lava covered with contrasting white sand, distant desert mountain horizons, and long stretches of soft, smooth desert road. This trail can be combined with a few others for a quick loop or combined with many others for a full-out overland trip through the Mojave.
