Trail Information

Highlights

Soggy Dry Lake is a must-go location for people who love the desert and is the other popular lakebed in Johnson Valley. The area is full of excellent trails and great beauty. Soggy was once a famous high-speed track where people would try to break the speed records back in the day. Today Soggy Dry Lake is mainly used for camping and for people who want to see how fast their off-highway vehicle can go. The surrounding hills are full of trails from mild to insane. So the next time you are heading out to Johnson Valley, want to try something different, check out Soggy Dry Lake in Southern California.
