The Jean and Roach Dry Lake Area provides hundreds of miles of trails to the casual and expert Off-highway vehicle enthusiast alike. At the center of the area is the area’s namesake, Jean Dry Lake, with Roach Dry Lake to the south along Interstate 15.
Although the name implies that the lakebed is dry, it has the potential of flooding and holding water long after a rainfall. After substantial precipitation events, the lakebed can hold several inches to several feet of water. Travel on the lakebed after a precipitation event is not recommended. Outside of the dry lakebed, motorized vehicle use is limited to existing roads and trails.
To the north and east, trails will take the rider to the hills surrounding the McCullough Wilderness and Sloan Canyon National Conservation Areas. No motorized use is allowed in these areas.
