In addition to motorhomes, this location has cabins for rent and also accommodates tent camping.
We will arrive in 29 Palms on Friday evening.
While some of the run is on dirt road, there are some interesting obstacles along the way therefore it will be termed a moderate RED run, especially on the later half of the trip. There are plenty of rocks and many parts of the road are washed out ensuring you experience plenty articulation. We will also follow some shelf roads and there are a few steep inclines and declines. A stock 4×4 will definitely hit and may damage the underneath of the vehicle. Your vehicle should have some lift. Four wheel drive is a necessity. This is NOT a beginner’s run.
Saturday evening: Pot Luck Dinner
