Description Suggest change

Tatooine is a group of crags perched atop a small hill west of the Fairview Dry Lake in Northeast Apple Valley. The rock type is similar to that found at the Apple Valley Area.

Getting There Suggest change

From Hwy 18: go north on Joshua Road, east on Cahuilla Road (dirt), north on Mountain View Lane (dirt). From here follow a network of dirt roads (stay on established roads) slightly further north and west into the valley where the crags are visible on top of the hill. A 4WD vehicle is recommended but an adventurous party could probably get a 2WD back there without much difficulty.
