The Mojave National Preserve was created in 1994 as part of the California Desert Protection Act. At 2,403 square miles it is the third largest property managed by the National Park Service. A vast majority of the Preserve is truly wilderness, with no services within nearly 100 miles from its heart. With stunning desert vistas, mesas, and sand dunes the Preserve offers beauty and isolation all in one place. Archaeological, and historic ranching and mining sites are plentiful.
Most of the sites below can be found in my book: Secret Places in the Mojave Desert IV. The books contain GPS coordinates and topographical maps, making it easier to locate the treasures in which the Mojave National Preserve hold.
