“A very technical run through two different slot canyons.”— Alex Bridgeforth
The geological formations will have you stopping quite a bit to take it all in. This route is located in the Rainbow Basin Natural Area, maintained by the local BLM here in Barstow. Rainbow Basin is a big basin full of colorful rock layers that are warped into anticlines and synclines.
A variety of desert wildlife are found here, including the desert tortoise.
The campgrounds are a first-come, first-served campground with 22 campsites (no hookups). Campsites include a picnic table and a fire ring. The fee is $6.00 per night; however, daily use is free!
