Johnson Valley OHV Park, CA


A few miles south of East Ord Mountain you will find a unique outcrop of large granite boulders that help create the setting for this trail. Known as Hercule’s Highway this 60-mile loop will surprise you with fascinating points of interest with a mix of fun obstacles to challenge your driving skills. The trail starts at Cougar Buttes but then soon traverses along a narrow twisty and windy trail that includes many small rock obstacles and sandy washes to navigate. Ideal for the high performance Polaris RZRs with high clearance and capable suspension to help conquer some of the trail obstacles you’ll encounter along your journey. Make sure to bring your camera and binoculars to take advantage of the scenic surroundings that await you!

The other reviews are spot-on. Ben got us in on short notice same-day, and was able to upgrade us. Very thorough on the machine overview and accommodating with PPE and special requests. We completed the Hercules Highway right at 3 hours. Would loved to have taken longer and made more stops along the way, but it was about 100 degrees and we needed the breeze! There is also surprisingly decent Verizon reception in the area, for those who may want to stay in touch with family. Hope we can visit again in the future.

A fabulous experience. They have fantastic equipment from the googles to the helmets and of course the vehicles. Ben,the owner, is onsite and provides all the safety checkouts before you ride. The route we chose was Hercules Hiway and it was a blast. Looking forward to doing it again highly recommend.
