Operating Hours & Seasons

Castle Mountains National Monument is always open. Information centers in Mojave National Preserve maintain regular hours of operation.

Mojave Desert experiences change with the seasons.

  • Infrequent winter snows sparkle on the mountains.
  • With enough moisture, spring wildflowers carpet the desert with vivid colors.
  • Summers are hot, so adventurers head for the higher elevations such as Mid-Hills and the New York Mountains.
  • The cooler temperatures mark the beginning of fall.
