West Region - Mojave Road Meet-up and Trail Guardian event

Come join us for a West Region Meet-up and Trail Guardian event. We will travel the Mojave Road from mile 0, just off the Needles Highway, to Highway 15 at Afton Canyon Campground. In conjunction with the National Park Service, we will also be conducting our first semi-annual trail cleanup along the way. This trip is limited to 50 vehicles, so “only sign up if you know you can go”. There will be a waiting list if we get enough interest. This trip is organized by Kent Reynolds, OB Executive Director, and Bob Brann, OB-West Region Director.
