Has anyone been out to Red Rock Canyon National Preserve? If so, any good and legal trails that I should make sure I hit up? I know often National Parks, Monuments, etc are very tame but some offer great off roading such as Anza Borrego.

Thanks for any recommendations.

Its a great area to explore and take in the sights. A lot of historical signifigance in that area. I have visited it a few times and enjoyed it immensely. The BLM has a program called Adopt-c-cabin for a few cabins that are in the area which you can stay for free, The only thing they ask is that you keep the place clean or cleaner than how you left it, and stay a maximum of no longer than 4 days at a time

Older thread, but oh well.

Just as a minor point of clarification, Red Rock Canyon National Preserve is a National Park located near Las Vegas. Red Rock Canyon State Park is operated by the California Department of Park and Recreation and is located 20 miles north of Mojave. I've actually had people show up here trying to find their friends who were at the other Red Rock!

I'm toying with the idea of throwing together a one day EP 15 run from Highway 14 to the 395, then ending in Randsburg at the little restaurant.

The majority of the routes in the park are pretty easy for a PreRunner. I would just steer clear of lower Last Chance Canyon, Black Rock Canyon, and Nightmare Gulch.
