Trail Information

Highlights

When you hear the words Johnson Valley, you can't stop thinking Hammers. The Road To The Hammers is the super highway that takes you to some of the most legendary trails in all of the United States let alone the world. The trail takes you from the party town on Means Dry Lake (aka Hammer Town) up into the hills and it dumps you right at the foot of some of the hardest trails in the area, Jack Hammer and Sledge Hammer. Thus, the next time you are in the area, take a quick drive up The Road To The Hammers and get yourself a glimpse of some of the most epic rock crawling / off-road trails in all of the United States.
