The Inland Empire isn’t called “Outdoor Playground” for no reason! Our adventurous businesses have given visitors the opportunity to rent all terrain vehicles and venture out into the wild. For those who own their own all terrain or four wheel drive vehicles, the IE has several locations in which you can ride at.
Big Pine Flat
This area offers about 10 miles of designated OHV trails.
The trail is mostly hard packed and rugged with narrow switchbacks.
The trail ties into Forest Service Road Crab Flats, which eventually connects to the Lake Arrowhead Trails.
Catus Flat OHV Staging Area
Off of Highway 18, north of Big Bear and south of Lucerne Valley. There is a vault toilet and a couple of picnic tables at the staging area along with ample parking and informational signs. Camping is allowed, but campfires (wood and charcoal) are not allowed.
Cleghorn OHV Trail
This is an old road/trail, about 15 miles in length that eventually leads to Silverwood Lake. While the trail is rated as easy, however there are options of more difficult trails. Located in San Bernardino, it is recommended for RVs to stage at Silverwood Lake,since the other option to stage is small and narrow.
Competitve Edge MX Park
A large and popular motocross park located in Hesperia, has four maintained and individually fenced tracks to enjoy. These tracks do not require a membership and open to the public.
Located in Baker, a remote area, offers more than 8,000 acres of open sand riding.
The area offers dunes for both experienced riders and beginners.
It is bordered by steep volcanic hills and the Amargosa River.
Glen Helen Raceway

El Mirage Dry Lake

“This particular area is secluded, offering several miles of sand washes and desert trails that lead to a small but fun dune area. Free access and overnight camping is permitted. Great for visitors who wish to avoid crowds”.
