Caruthers Canyon

About 5.5 miles west of Ivanpah Road on New York Mountains Road, then 2.7 miles north on an unigned road, Caruthers Canyon is located in the rugged New York Mountains. Surrounded by mountains rising over 7,500 feet, a botanical "island" of chaparral plants remains from wetter times of the past. High clearance and four-wheel drive recommended.
