Rasor Dunes, California

Rasor Dunes

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.
