Situated at the edge of the Mojave Desert and the toe of the Sierra Mountains, Ridgecrest is a great place to be if you love the outdoors.

There is no such thing as cabin fever in Ridgecrest.  In the winter when the snow is covering the higher elevations and the frozen north, vast expanses of open desert provide recreational opportunities for OHV enthusiasts, rock hounds, or people looking for a quiet wilderness experience (Death Valley National Park is just up the road). About The Ridgecrest Field Office
