Beautiful spot right in the middle of cacti.
4x4 and high clearance needed.

Stunningly beautiful desert landscape within the Valley of the Candles Reserve. 4WD not needed. Drove here in a 2WD Sprinter van. The road is deep sand but so long as you maintain speed, it’s fine, I never got stuck.Report Check-In
We arrived here on bicycle on pushed our bikes far enough down the sand track until we weren’t visible from the freeway. We had a beautiful wild camp of a bit noisy with the coyotes and noise from the trucks on the road. It looked like the tracks were in use but we didn’t see anyone and no one bothered us. No mobile reception.Report Check-In
There was no sign at the hwy this time and no sign on the fence either. We continued on the sandy trail and parked on the side where was enough space between cacti and Joshua trees. There were only two cars going further down the road and back out again. We didn't go all the way to the recommended spot. It was relaxing spot, not too much noise from hwy.Report Check-In
We did not go to this place because there is a big sign "private property" at the beginning of the track at the Mex1.
We found two other places a bit further north (see our entries "Desert creek" and "Hillside camp").
