California City, Ca

California City is a small desert town about 12 miles SE of the Jawbone Canyon Store.  California City is the 3rd largest city in square miles in California and offers lots of camping and off road opportunities.  It's a town of about 12,000, with a hotel, market and restaurants.  If you have a hankerin' for Mexican food, try Gloria's Kitchen.  There is also a great Ace Hardware, and the best part is that there is a family friendly off road trail from California City to The Jawbone Canyon Store!
