Rider Scott Thompson reviewed on July 18, 2016:  "Not enough is said about the Timber Inn. This small town bar inn was amazing.  The owner was more than willing to help us with whatever we needed. We had a large group so we filled his small inn for the first time. He did not even have a no vacancy sign to post. He allowed tents in the back yard for $5. We were there on taco Tuesday. The large tacos were like your mother made at home. All the food and hospitality was outstanding. While talking to the owner he explained that his business is really struggling so he really appreciated the business. Can you pls repost this on the website to encourage other riders to take advantage of this great small business.

The Mission at San Juan Capistrano (CABDR-South)

Established 1776.  This is the gem of the California Missions, located less than a mile off the 5 Freeway, it offers a glimpse back in time to what was happening on the “Left Coast” at the same time our Nation was being founded.  If you can’t make it this trip, you will be back, just as the Swallows of lore.

Anza Borrego State Park (CABDR -South)

Ok, you could spend days riding amazing dirt roads or just stop here for a scenic overlook on your way, the Carrizo Badlands Overlook.

Glamis, Imperial Dunes (CABDR-South)

So, you want to brush up on your sand skills before riding the CABDR, or make like Ricky Brabec or Andrew Short and get skills for the Dakar?  Well this is the place and it’s right on the way.      

And check out what’s left of the “Wood Planked Road”, early road builders’ efforts to tame the drifting desert sand.

Felicity, CA - Center of the World? (CABDR-South)

Could be, but then again since the world is a sphere, just about any place could warrant this claim. If you are into funky, interesting places, this is worth the time.

Yuma Territorial Prison (CABDR-South)

Make the stop, even if it’s not 3:10.  You will be rewarded with a peek into the life of interesting desperados, living out their days in sweltering summer heat or freezing winter nights with nothing but steel bars to quell the elements.

Ocean to Ocean Bridge (CABDR-South)

Finally! You are on the route and it begins with a jaunt over the one lane Ocean to Ocean Bridge that separates Yuma from Winterhaven, CA. and the start of the CABDR-South.

Picacho State Park and the Colorado River (CABDR-South)

If you choose to camp after traveling south to Yuma, this historic state park is just up the road and well worth the fee to camp.

Wiley’s Well (CABDR-South)

Camping, but with no potable water.

The Bradshaw Trail (CABDR-South)

Created in 1862 this was the first trail that crossed the Riverside County desert all the way to the Colorado River to allow gold seekers to get to La Paz AZ.  There is camping (Wiley’s Well 33°29'36.8"N 114°53'20.8"W  or 33.49356 , -114.8891 ) just north of where we pick up the Trail heading east, but no potable water.

The Blythe Intaglios (Geoglyphs) (CABDR-South)

Not to be missed.  Step back in time, way back in time. Experience Native American ground art believed to be over 800 years old and similar to the famed Nazca Lines found in Peru, although on a smaller scale.

Aha Quin Resort or Water Wheel Resort (CABDR-South)

Aha Quin Resort or Water Wheel Resort ( 29630 US-95 just up the road from Aha Quin). Not much more there than mobile home parks situated on the banks of the Colorado River, but if you didn’t get supplies in Blythe, the general store is your last opportunity for a while.

The Mother Road or Historic Route 66 (CABDR-South)

Established on November 11, 1926, the highway, which became one of the most famous roads in the United States, originally ran from Chicago to Santa Monica covering a total of 2,448 miles. Get your kicks here;  oh wait, we all have electric starts now.

Hi Sahara Oasis (CABDR-South)

Not so much of a desert Oasis as it is a place for food and fuel. Gas will probably be the most expensive on this route but grin, bare it, and be thankful you are not filling up a Winnebago, as there’s not another option.

Goffs, The Mojave Desert Heritage Assoc. Museum and the Mojave Preserve (CABDR-South)

A lot here in the middle of nowhere.  If you have time check out the Museum before entering the Mojave Preserve.  You could spend a week just riding the Preserve alone, exploring everything from Afton Canyon to ZZYZX.   Now’s the time to extend the vacation, if you have cell coverage.

Bert Smith’s Rock House (CABDR-South)

After WWI, returning veterans who had been exposed to poison gas found the deserts of California provided health benefits.  This cabin constructed in 1929 is an example of the homesteads build primarily of native materials.

Remnants of the Original Mojave Road (CABDR-South)

A glance down and right will reward you with a view of the original wagon wheel tracks of the infamous Mojave Road.  This trail once connected Fort Mojave to Camp Cady and previously used by the Chumash as a trade route due to the existence of what little water is to be found in the Mojave.

Death Valley Mine (CABDR-South)

Death Valley Mine (though not in Death Valley) is an example of mines found throughout California.  Established in 1906 as a mine and a community for miners from surrounding claims.

Evening Star Mine (CABDR-South)

As the only tin ore mine in the Mojave, it was also one of the few with a crusher on top of the head frame.  As this mine ceased operation in 1944 it is still relatively well preserved.

Riley’s Camp (CABDR-South)

A medic and an explosives trainer (kinda makes sense) during WWI, this camp is yet another example of a harsh life carved out of the Mojave Desert.  Be thankful you have heating, air conditioning and a flush toilet awaiting the return to your homestead.

Colosseum Mine (CABDR-South)

Everything you could ever want to know about this big hole in the ground, right here.  Ride down to the bottom at your own risk if you must, but resist the urge to take a dip in the multi-colored waters of the lake.  Word on the trail is that the residual chemicals left over from mining operations would leave your skin looking like something from the Apocalypse.

The China Ranch (CABDR-South)

Date Shakes! You have earned it, don’t pass up chance to hydrate and carbo load before entering Death Valley. Dates are 75% Carbohydrates, 21% water and the perfect desert snack. Savoring all the varietals here will leave you feeling like King Tut.

Delights Hot Springs (CABDR-South)

Half way through this BDR and you may be ready for rustic lodging or a soak in a hot spring, particularly if you are riding in the middle of winter. Tecopa Brewing Company is just down the road too.

Harry Wade Exit, Saratoga Springs Road (CABDR-South)

Trying to find a quick way through Death Valley to the Gold of California almost proved disastrous for the wagon train guided by Harry.  Fortunately, he found a southern exit from Death Valley before they ran out of water. We use this route as our Southern Entrance to this place of storied heat and wonder.

Devils Golf Course (CABDR-South)

No, your GPS has not gone on the fritz.  You are now well below sea level. In fact, at 282 Feet below Sea level Badwater Basin (36°13'47.3"N 116°46'01.2"W or 36.22981, -116.767) is not just the lowest point in the US, but the 8th lowest elevation on earth.

Titus Canyon (CABDR-South)

This canyon offers up sweeping views, steep canyon walls, remnants of a boom town that lasted less than a year (Leadville) and represents classic Death Valley Adventure riding.

Scotty’s Castle (CABDR-South)

Damaged in a massive flashflood that roared through Death Valley in Oct. 2015 restoration is not yet complete, but when it is, it's not to be missed.

Ubehebe Crater (CABDR-South)

Your friends will think you had one too many when you tell of your visit to Ubehebe. Pronunciation aside, this massive crater is just one of the amazing things Death Valley offers on this route.

The Race Track (CABDR-South)

An amazing set of atmospheric events combine to make rocks mysteriously slide across this desert playa leaving tracks etched in mud.   For decades this mystery went unsolved, many believing they were moved by the hand of God.

Cerro Gordo (CABDR-South)

Here’s your chance to experience a living, breathing ghost and mining town.  Step inside the American Hotel, built in 1867, saunter up to the bar or sit at the poker table in the parlor where many a game ended in a gun fight (bullet holes still visible in the walls).

Museum of Western Film History (CABDR-South)

If you are a fan of Western films, hitch your Adventure bike to a post out front and learn about the hundreds of films shot in and around Lone Pine California.  Make sure you pick up a map of the Alabama Hills with GPS coordinates to place yourself and your bike in your favorite film, from movies shot before sound, to recent blockbusters.

Manzanar National Historic Site (CABDR-South)

After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 authorizing the establishment of camps like Manzanar to intern American citizens just by virtue of their ancestry. This affront to the liberty we all hold dear has been thoughtfully preserved to give each visitor insight into the lives of those interned and reminds us how our government, complicit with Americans overcome with unfounded fear, responded with barbed wire and armed guards.

The Reward Mine (CABDR-South)

Not for you if you suffer Nyctophobia or Claustrophobia but the rest of us will enjoy the opportunity to ride our Adventure bikes deep into depths of a Gold and Silver mine. Just have a flashlight handy if you decide to experience total darkness by shutting off your bike and can’t find your ignition key.

Fish Slough Petroglyphs (CABDR-South)

Around 8,000 years ago this region was settled by the ancestors of the Bishop Paiute – Shoshone tribe. Over the course of thousands of years these earliest settlers left messages carved and painted on the three-quarter of a million-year-old volcanic rock across the region. Much of the messages carved in stone are unknown, however there is some consensus that they could be of celestial recordings or ceremonial in nature as opposed to many petroglyphs found in the West that record animals, hunters and tools of daily life.

The Inn at Benton Hot Springs (CABDR-South)

Reward your accomplishment for completing the CABDR-South with a stay at this Historic Bed and Breakfast.  Soak in the natural fed hot springs tubs, have a wonderful breakfast after a night spend in a bed rather than sand and rocks from the previous evenings.  Or, camp out behind the Inn. Even the campsites have their own private tubs. Reservations recommended.

Snow Levels low on CABDR


We have had reports from riders on the CABDR that snow is present going up the backside of Cerro Gordo. We are assuming there will be snow on the easier alternate route from Teakettle Junction up Hunter Mtn to Saline Valley Rd.  This also means there will be snow on the harder alternate route up Mazourka, Wyman and Silver Canyons.

Snow inset 6

We have not had any reports of snow on Saline Valley Rd as of yet. If you have experience any new areas or changes in what is posted here, please email us with the information.
