The Johnson Valley Shared Use Area in California’s Mojave Desert will be closed to recreational activities Aug. 1-30 while the U.S. Marine Corps conducts training exercises.

More than 43,000 acres within the adjacent Johnson Valley OHV Recreation Area will remain open to the public during August, and off-road enthusiasts can also use the nearby Stoddard Valley OHV Open Area.

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management reminds the public that motorized recreation in the area surrounding the Johnson Valley OHV Recreation Area is limited to signed designated routes.
