0.37 acre lot for sale in California City, CA in the Mojave Desert between Bakersfield and Barstow. It's about 115 miles NE of Los Angeles and 230 miles SW of Las Vegas, Nevada by Edwards Air Force Base, Ridgecrest, the Tehachapi Mountains and Red Rock Canyon State Park in Kern County. The property is less than 1/4 mile off paved 20 Mule Team Parkway & 1/2 mile from the Cal City MX Motocross Park - come play in the sunny warm desert!

All of the photos were taken about 1 mile north in May 2013 and should be an excellent representation of the land and surrounding hills. It's mostly flat with a gentle roll. Its a corner lot with Peter Drive along its W, N and E and only one neighbor adjoining it to the S as seen in the parcel map.

The property is about 2/10 of a mile south of paved Twenty Mule Team Parkway which runs from California City to Hwy 395 to the East. This is an excellent paved road with power along it and there are also water mains along it. Chrysler Drive leads S to Peter Drive which are both bladed dirt roads.

Although there is a water main running along 20 Mule Team Parkway you would need to pay to bring it to the property and that sounds like it would be quite a bit. The city indicated you would need to talk to an engineer for the cost. I think this property is best suited for someone who wants to go hang out in the RV with holding tanks as your source of water and septic.

As you can see in the photos that's what other property owners are doing out here - bring out their toys and RVs to play on a fun property! The sounds of dirt bikes and no dust or sand blowing with only small gusts of wind that felt great in the 91 degree weather that day.

We stopped and spoke to them and were told the Polaris was over $20,000! He said at night you can see the red lights from the windmills to the west along the foothills of the Tehachapi Mountains which run from NW to SW on the west side of the Mohave Desert. You can also see the lights from CA City, but they did not obstruct the stargazing at night being outside of town. They had been camping for 30 years there and have seen a lot of growth in the last decade. This is a great spot for future development seeing the growth out this way with utilities and still being able to get a good price before the development is there. Lots of fun in the meantime!

Borax Bill Park is about one mile W on 20 Mule Team Parkway and is a recreational off-roading park which allows RV camping. It's adjacent to the Cal City MX Park with tracks open to those 4 years and older.

Cuddeback Dry Lake sits 10 miles E on the other side of the Gravel Hills. It's a low laying valley between Red Mountain and Freemont Peak and a hot spot for motorcyclists. This is a limited use area that allows travel on existing routes. The BLM road along the way had a sign that said "limited use signs" and pictures of quads, jeeps and motorcycles.

There was a helicopter doing maneuvers in the lake which is about 6 miles long and 2.5 miles wide. I did a google search about Cuddeback Lake and see that it has been used for target practice over the years and perhaps there was a study going on out there when we visited in May 2011 which would account for the dust swirls from the helicopter!

The City's OHV area attracts over 10,000 riders on holiday weekends. It is no surprise since there are over 1,800 miles of city combination use roads/dirt trails and 33.5 miles of designated OHV trails within the city.

California City is one of the top birding spots in southern California. The creation of parks and golf courses in the 1960's has now become a habitat for birds migrating along the Pacific Flyway! The Silver Saddle Club at the base of Galileo Hill has a record of over 350 species of birds recorded and there has even been the occasional spotting of rare or endangered species by some lucky birders. They graciously allows birders on their property. I inlcuded a link above to the chamber of commerce for further information as birders will need to check in at the front desk. It also has other popular areas to view the birds! The Silver Saddle Resort sits about 5 miles W of this 20 acres as the crow flies and I wonder who you'll spot flying over head!

Several times while exploring the area we've come across nice big camp sites with RV's set up, and people outside enjoying jeeps, quads and motorcycles. It's an interesting harsh desert with plenty of sunshine! I saw a lizard and a snake which I got a great shot of making for a good "Why did the snake cross the road" joke - be careful out there!

If I told you I stumbled across a private party out in the middle of the Mojave Desert you might not believe me so I included a photo of me waking up the next morning at 6 AM! I so enjoyed the event...something I will never forget...lots of fire twirling and acrobats, music 24 hours nonstop. I fell asleep exhausted watching it all and woke the next morning to the warm sunshine relaxing my old muscles as I swayed one more time to the music and a much greater appreciation for the great Mojave Desert!

About 50 miles NW is Red Rock Canyon State Park at the southernmost tip of the Sierra Nevada's! It features beautiful vivid colored cliffs, rock formations and buttes. Once home to the Kawaiisu Indians who left petroglyphs in the El Paso Mountains, the park now protects significant paleontology sites. After wet winters the parks floral display is notable. Wildlife includes roadrunners, hawks ,lizards, mice and squirrels. Some petroglyphs and pictographs represent the ritual sites from the early Native American inhabitants. I just added that to my bucket list to see the petroglyphs!

This area is on the outskirts of some major cities and has great potential to grow. It is a rural area with extremely good access to recreational activities and sights and sounds, or whatever your passions may be! If you have been looking for a cheap place to go play in the desert be sure and check this out! Enjoy! Char the Explorer : )

Kern County, San Bernardino County and California City Area Photos

A video I made of Kern County and Southern California!

All of these photos were taken on our journeys to the Kern and San Bernardino Counties and the surrounding area California City, Mojave, Red Rock Canyon State Park, Big Bear in the San Bernardino National Forest and the Pacific Ocean!

Kern County is located in Southern California east beyond the southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada’s extending into the Mojave Desert. Its a few hours to Los Angeles, San Francisco, the Pacific Coast , and Las Vegas. Bakersfield is the county seat.

The Mojave Desert is defined by the presence of Joshua Trees and you certainly find them scattered about! The weather is a dry mild climate and plenty of sunshine! It is truly amazing what it looks like when you add some rain.

Wintertime is skiing and snowboarding within easy driving distance and summer offers fishing and exploring.

The wild and scenic Kern River is a favorite for its world-class rapids. The Kern River Valley is also the gateway to the Giant Sequoia National Monument and is home to some of the best fishing and camping in California. It has five recreational lakes including Lake Isabella where the Kern River flows in and out of. Activities include fishing, camping, windsurfing, and skiing.

Red Rock Canyon State Park is 25 miles N of Mojave. This state park offers scenic desert cliffs and spectacular rock formations. Once home to the Kawaiisu Indians there are petro glyphs in the El Paso mountains from these people:

I started traveling through this part around 2002 and saw Victorville and Lancaster improving major roads. Then I started seeing lots of employees standing on street corners on the weekends with shaker signs pointing potential home buyers to come check out their new developments. I notice that Highway 14 which goes through Mojave to the Bakersfield-Barstow Highway had improvements being made to it in January 2007.

Lancaster and Palmdale are 40 and 50 miles south of CA City respectively. These cities are separated from Los Angeles by the San Gabriel Mountain range. This valley has become a bedroom community to the greater Los Angeles area.

The major employers in the area are Edwards Air force Base, located just south of the city, California City Prison, the landowners resort Silver Saddle, a large automotive test track, and US Borax. There are several air force bases and airports in the California area including Edwards Air Force Base. There are also a couple of speedways used by the giant automobile manufacturers of Honda, Acura, and Hyundai. The Honda Proving Center has a speedway north of California City and Hyundai has one east of California City.

Dubbed the Aerospace Valley, East Kern is home of the Air Force Flight Test Center and Museum and NASA’S Dryden Flight Research Facility. It is the birthplace of more flight records than any other spot on the planet! You can view the history of flight or developments in military technology at Edwards Air Force Base, Vernon P. Saxon Flight Museum, or the U.S. Naval Museum of Armament and Technology at the China Naval Air Weapons Station.

I explored Big Bear in the San Bernardino National Forest, a wintertime playground for the locals. Kids were out playing at the lake enjoying the snow - a very cute ski town! The lake was frozen over in places!

The Pacific Ocean offers endless entertainment. One of my favorite parts of the west coast is the drive through Monterey, Pebble Beach, Carmel-By-The Sea on down to Big Sur where you will see stunning views of the ocean and you might even catch a glimpse at a whale!
