February 24-25, 2018
800am Saturday - 8pm Sunday
Mojave National Preserve is one of California’s newest National Preserves. On this two day, one night trip we will explore lava tubes, summit the 650' high Kelso Dunes, and hike the "Hole-in-the-Wall" Trail. We will be traveling by foot and car by day and night will be filled with warm campfires and s'mores.
Day 1: We will meet at the Student Recreation and Wellness Center at 800am on Saturday morning to pack up the van and make sure we all have the necessary and proper gear and attire for a successful trip. Then it’s a nice 180 mile drive (3 hours) to the Mojave National Preserve. We will be stopping at the lava tubes to each some lunch and explore, and then it’s off to the Kelso Depot visitors Center. After visiting the center we head for Hole in the Wall camp for some dinner and s’mores, and if we are up to it, there is a ranger program that we could attend that night.
Day 2: Its rise and shine at 800am for some breakfast and packing some lunch. We pack up camp after words and grab our day packs to go hike the 1.5 mile Ring Loop trail nearby. Soon after, we load up in the van and head over to the Kelso dunes. While there we will eat some lunch and do a 3 mile hike, round trip, over and around the golden lite sand dunes. The group will then be on the road by approximately 300pm heading back to CSUSB. We will stop on the way home for dinner. (Dinner is not provided, please bring money). You will arrive back home at CSUSB by 800pm that night.
