New York Mountains Road Drive Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Rising to 7,500 feet, the craggy New York Mountains are an intriguing contrast to the broad, sloping landscapes of the Mojave Desert. The mountains, largely granite, include Precambrian igneous and metamorphic rock as old as 1 billion years. Uniquely, oaks and white firs have a foothold in these mountains, which are noted as well for a series of volcanic spires, Castle Peaks (northeast of this drive). Caruthers Canyon, where a stream winds through a jumble of granite boulders amid chaparral, is not to be missed."
