Rasor Dunes, California
Name: Rasor OHV Area
Southern California, 15 miles southwest of Baker and 50 miles
east of Barstow
Rasor Off-Highway Vehicle Area (22,500 acres of open riding
area) is a remote area for the off-highway vehicle user. The
area has rolling hills, open valleys, sand washes and sand dunes that invite
the rider willing to travel to this area. Elevations range from about 2,427
feet elevation down to about 1,275 feet elevation at the Mojave River. Besides
the remote nature of the area, another attraction is the historic Mojave Road
which runs through the riding area into the newly designated Mojave National
Preserve (street-legal vehicles only in the Preserve).
Elevation - 1,275 ft. - 2,427 ft.
The riding area is between Interstate 15 and the Mojave
National Preserve, about 15 miles southwest of Baker. Access roads are Basin
Road and Rasor Road east of the I-15. Both of these roads are graded dirt
roads, but winter weather can leave them very rough. Once exiting I-15, it is about 6 miles south on Rasor Rd. to the dunes.
Dispersed dry camping allowed. No facilities. Camping is allowed
anywhere with the riding area that does not block travel on a road; limited to a
14 day stay.
