Historic desert locations such as Randsburg, Ballarat, Garlock, the Trona Pinnacles, are just minutes away from Ridgecrest. The area boasts remote desert vistas such as Cuddeback Dry Lake (Jurassic Park), Death Valley (Dante's Peak...and hundreds more), and even the tiny Inyokern, population 900 (The Break Up).
Lying at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Ridgecrest is an hour drive (Hwy 395) from the historic Lone Pine, Alabama Hills and Southern California's prime canyons and meadows like Jawbone Canyon, Red Rock Canyon, and the quaint Kennedy Meadows.
Just 2 hours north of Los Angeles via Highways 14 and 395, Ridgecrest and the surrounding Indian Wells Valley is worth a look.
