Johnson Valley

April 26th 2024





-We will be Camping Friday and Saturday Night!


We will be doing a complete loop of the KOH area in Johnson Valley!

Hammers Scenic by way - (Easy/Moderate Trail) A moderate trail that cuts between the hills that all the Hammers sit on and continues North by Chocolate Thunder, Claw Hammer, Sand Hill, Big Johnson and several others. It slaloms in and out of the Johnson Valley OHV area and gives you a great perspective of the extreme trails that are just off the route. 

Fissure Mountain Trail - (Intermediate Trail)- Possibly one of the only Intermediate trails in Johsnon Valley. A classic off-road trail is a unique scenic drive as it skirts along the famous Hammer Trails and has epic views allowing you to see miles in almost any dorection.

We will be making stops along the way to run some off shoots and view some of these extremely hard trails that tempt only the toughest custom built Rigs and most experienced Drivers from all over the world.

Plan to eat lunch on the trail and take lots of pictures.
