Black Mountain Area of Critical Environmental Concern; Barstow CA

Where the locals can destroy rural signs & tables, with their big powerful guns - just for the hell of it. Leaving us tourist lost & bewildered. Desert roads can all look the same, so make sure you have the proper area maps for Mojave Trails.

Some call it the middle of the Mojave Desert, where the temperatures are extreme, and many roads come together. The fact is a hell of a lotta tourist traffic and freight trains come thru here, bound for California consumers. Barstow, CA is where the California Interstate 40 & 15 meet, along with Hwy 58. This is where historic Route 66 can still be found. It's on the way to Vegas, to Arizona, anywhere east of Cali.

Mojave Desert Racing, rock crawling, off-road routes, look for our Total Escape logo out on the trails. And get your desert OHV maps here on Total Escape.
