Highlight: Fissure Mountain Trail
Possibly the only real intermediate trail in Johnson Valley, California, Fissure Mountain Trail is a great offroad trail for everyone from stock 4x4s to built buggies. This classic off-road trail is a unique scenic drive as it skirts along the famous Hammer Trails and has epic views allowing you to see miles in almost any direction. The trail got its name after a fissure opened up during the Landers quake in 1992. Since most of the trails in the area are either easy or insanely hard, this is a welcome addition to the area as it makes for a great Jeep Trail to drive for people that are learning to offroad or the people that just want an enjoyable way to take a break from the hard trails. And this one isn't just another rock crawling trail; it has some overland features to it as well, with unique camping opportunities. So if you are in Johnson Valley, and want to do something different, check out Fissure Mountain, and make it a memorable adventure in the deserts of Southern California.
