A Short Drive Away
Besides the activities and events that can be enjoyed in town, there are a variety of things to experience nearby.
Red Rock Canyon
Hiking, Rock Climbing & Camping
Red Rock Canyon State Park features scenic desert cliffs, buttes and spectacular rock formations. The park is located where the southernmost tip of the Sierra Nevada converge with the El Paso Range. Each tributary canyon is unique, with dramatic shapes and vivid colors.
Featured in Star Trek, Planet of the Apes, and Lady Gaga's music video, Stupid Love, the Trona Pinnacles are a unique geological feature in the California Desert Conservation Area. The unusual landscape consists of more than 500 tufa spires, some as high as 140 feet, rising from the bed of the Searles Dry Lake basin.
