California City OHV Recreation Program
The City of California City enjoys the distinction of being the third largest city in California with land area that totals 203 square miles. The City is home to a vast area of ultra-terrain composites for off-road machines to search and/or traverse.

The California City Police Department has created the Desert Incident Response Team, to patrol these ultra-terrain areas and to deploy resources for off road incidents.

Funded and operated  through State Parks, by way of OHV funds (green sticker fees), and the California City OHV Permit Program, D.I.R.T. plays a public safety role for all visitors to this high desert community. D.I.R.T. also maintains the Borax Bill Park located along the historic Twenty Mule Team Parkway.

Since the D.I.R.T. program began in 2000, we have assisted in over 10,000 incidents.
There are over 1,800 miles of City combination use roads/dirt trails and 33.5 miles of designated OHV trails in California City, to include the OHV Trail into the City's Business District. The focus point was BLM Trail R5, at Campsite C and Chrysler Drive. Two OHV routes were designed from that point to Borax Bill Park, CC10 and CC5. CC10 is a route that follows non-maintained City streets (11 miles). CC5 is a challenging route through City easements (8.5 miles). CC5 merges into CC10 at Borax Bill Park, and continues on to the Business District (14 miles). The below map reflects the main roadways into California City, the OHV riding areas, the restricted areas for OHV operation, and the new OHV trails.
