Future Trips

Here we list trips scheduled by the Desert Explorers for the near and distant future. Also listed are some trips that are organized and led by our members but which do not require membership in the Mojave River Valley Museum (MRVM) and are, therefore, not MRVM-sponsored Desert Explorer trips.

Some trips, such as those involving stays at private residences or visits to obscure rock art sites, are posted only in the Desert Explorers' Newsletter. Conversely, some impromptu trips will be posted here and not in the Newsletter.

All trip participants will be required to sign our waiver.

Tour of Ridge Route

May 9, 2020 Leader: Bob Jacoby

We will meet on Saturday morning May 9 in the Gorman area. We will be following the historic Ridge Route which was the original auto road between Los Angeles and Bakersfield. The tour will be led by a local historian who will provide historical information for the entire route. We will be having lunch on the trail.

The road has not been maintained for over 50 years, so you can expect just about any kind of conditions. High clearance, at least, will be required.

There may be a $5 charge by the historian for each person on the trip. For more information, contact Bob Jacoby.
