I just found out about Amboy Crater. It is north of Joshua Tree National Park. If you have visited Amboy Crater, can you share your thoughts on visiting the crater?

Just found out about it myself through the article in Hiways. We plan to go there on our way home from Texas in early March. I have been going to that part of the Mojave for over forty years but this has escaped me till now.

Whoops! It was Motorhome, not Hiways. I received them both on the same day and got a little mixed up. We are going there anyway despite my failing brain.

Amboy Crater is located just to the west of the town of Amboy on the old Route 66, now called "National Trails Highway". It is easily visible from Amboy and is south of the highway. Its a classic, black, cinder cone crater and while not a particularly spectacular crater, it is interesting enough if its on your way somewhwere else. There is a dirt road part-way to the crater and then an easy hike. The crater is only a couple of hundred feet high.

One word of caution: Take plenty of water, even if the weather is cool. Suggest hiking this in early morning. Do NOT attempt this hike in hot weather, as people have died on this "little" hike. Not a rumor, we were SAR in that area and saw the body.

From Las Vegas, go south on I-15 to Baker, where you take a left through the Majove Reserve.

Keep going straight after passing under I-40 and you will shortly be at a "T" which is old highway 66 (route 66), turn right and soon you will be in Amboy. The Crater is a couple of miles on the left just off of 66.
