Snowmobiling is available on roads in the City of Rocks when weather permits.

Established in 1988 as a National Reserve, City of Rocks encompasses 14,407 acres of land renowned for its scenic, geologic and historic significance. The City of Rocks area was an important landmark on the California Trail. You can still see axle-grease inscriptions on the spires that were written by pioneers traveling through the area. Pioneer diaries from 1843 onward, describe the rocks in vivid detail as “a city of tall spires”, “steeple rocks”, and a display of “all manner of fantastic shapes”.
