This is the 4x4 trail you see off the mountain behind the "Welcome to Ridgecrest" Sign as you approach the city. The welcome to Ridgecrest sign had a popular slogan for a while "Ridgecrest - Gateway to Death Valley". Well, someone felt clever and crossed out the Valley..... Gateway to Death! A lot of youth that grow up in Ridgecrest end up feeling this way, until they grow older and realize its not that bad at all.
