Johnson Valley OHV Park, CA


Approximately a 42-mile trail loop, Hercules Byway will amaze you with large granite boulder outcrops that many say are similar to the ones seen in Joshua Tree National Park. This trail traverses all types of terrain including sandy washes, vast valleys surrounded by mountain peaks approaching 7,000 feet, and serpentine trails with grand elevation changes to lift you high above the desert floor while capturing magical vistas with endless beauty. As you captain your Polaris RZR along this 42 mile loop you will feel in command experiencing a thrill ride like no other.

Extremely well-maintained vehicles. Friendly and outgoing service – Ben was awesome! I run Jeeps back east and I can tell you that this is a fantastic way to spend a few hours exploring the desert. You will not be disappointed.
