Driving Directions
Drive to Hesperia, CA.
Ride from Hesperia to Santa Fe East which is on the east side of the railroad tracks that pass under Main St. Continue on this road after the name changes to Summit Valley Road. You will pass by the Hesperia Airport, go down a hill, around a corner and shortly thereafter the road will change to a dirt road. The road is dirt for another 4-5 miles and then it is paved again. The road continues climbing and then dumps you down onto Highway 138 with the Summit Valley Country store right across the road. Make a left onto 138 and watch out for cars. After a couple miles, make a left onto Highway 173. Take Hwy 173 all the way to Arrowhead Lake road and make a left. Take this road back to Hesperia.
