I've taken the Mojave Trail three times. The first time was with a few people from Total Chaos and the other two times were with a few friends going out to Rage at the River.

I'm sure a lot of you have been out there also. Let's see some photos from your trips and some of the areas you like to check out. I'll start with some of my older photos from my first two trips.

From my 2013 trip with Total Chaos. The lake bed east of Rice Rd. was pretty smooth that year compared to the other times I went.

How would this be on a plated enduro bike?
Super fun. The "trail" is really just a maintained fire road, but there are plenty of side trails and hills to climb. We camped in a wash one year, that would be fun to blast through on a bike.

You can do it in early Fall, just get there before the rain starts falling. We ran it Veterans Day weekend one year, and had no issues. It did get a little cold at night, but it wasn't too bad once the sun came up.

like to see more and some maps or gps files.
Here is a pretty detailed GPS file of the Mojave Trail from PCI. They also have a couple other places as well.

That is a great book. If you are doing a 2-3 trip your co-driver can read along and find some really cool spots for you. I have it as well

we were out in the Mojave and went by the old mining town Vanderbilt can. Some tenacious artist cut this all out of the metal building with what looks like a grinder.
