Jawbone Canyon

AKA: East Kern County, Grass Valley Wilderness, Mojave Desert, Red Rock, Cantil, Jawbone OHV Area, Jawbone To Lake Isabella, Jawbone Station / Randsburg, Rand Mountain, Isabella Lake, Jawbone Canyon OHV, Mojave Deser

Summary


This canyon is littered with steep and challenging hill climbs. These climbs are steep and loose enough that you really need a big 4-stroke or a 500cc 2-stroke to make it to the top consistently. The valleys are deep with sand and you can do long loops (IMS tank recommended), but the most interesting routes do require a few good hill climbs. Sometimes during the evening, violent canyon winds may kick up and do a pretty good job of shaking up RV's and trailers. The visitor center at the entrance has maps and guide books for all of the surrounding area. A quarter mile to the south is a small gas pump, with ATV rentals, repairs and a restaurant.
