Northwest of Barstow, the Rasor OHV Area has plenty of dirt biking trails. This is an exciting and more remote area for the off-highway vehicle user. Rasor has rolling hills, open valleys, and sand dunes that invite riders willing to travel through this remote area. Elevations range from near 2,427 feet elevation down to around 1,275 feet elevation at the Mojave River.
Besides the remote nature of the area, another attraction is the historic Mojave Road which runs through the riding area into the newly designated Mojave National Preserve (street-legal vehicles only in the Preserve). Vegetation consists of creosote scrub, some annual grasses and wild flowers.
The dirt biking area is located between Interstate 15 and the Mojave National Preserve, about 25 miles southwest of Baker. Access roads are Basin Road and Rasor Road east of the I-15. Both of these roads are graded dirt roads.
Most visitors ride motorcycles or ATVs, drive sand rails or tour the area in four-wheel drive vehicles. The easily accessed areas off the Rasor Road exit are used extensively for OHV and sand rail staging and play. Due to the remoteness of the area, there have been no requests for competitive event permits, leaving this area exclusively for casual riders.
To reach the Rasor Road Access point from the intersection of SR 127 and I-15 in Baker, go west/south on I-15 for 12.4 miles to exit 232 (Rasor Road.) Follow Rasor Road east to OHV area.
Overall, Rasor OHV Area is the 36th most popular dirt bike trail of all 117 dirt biking rides in California. Several of the better dirt bike trails are nearby Rasor OHV Area including California City Riding Area, Stoddard Valley OHV Area, Mojave Road, El Mirage Dry Lake ORV Area, Johnson Valley ORV Area and Olancha Dunes Riding Area.
