You must have access to Edwards AFB to ride these trails. You also must be current with your desert tortoise training. Video here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=vaiE-ixl5BY

If you happen to get stationed or work at Edwards Air Force Base you are in for a treat! There are some fun mountain bike trails here! The terrain is mostly sandy and rocky so it may take some getting used to but the trails are well ridden and flowy. There are also some technical rocky sections if you know where to go. This is not a complete route as there are TONS of trails that spiderweb all over the place. If you are not tubeless, you will definitely need some flat protection as the goatheads run rampant. Bring extra tubes and lots of water. Have Fun!
