Cima Road

About 26 miles east of Baker, Calif., the paved Cima Road connects I-15 with Cima, Calif., 16 miles to the southeast.
Joshua Tree along Cima Road
A kooky Joshua tree along Cima Road. Though about a quarter of the Joshua tree woodland burned in the August 2020 Dome Fire, many healthy specimens remain, and we are optimistic about the recovery of the ecosystem.

Cima Dome & Joshua Tree Forest
Self-guiding trail, no water.

The near-perfect symmetry of Cima Dome rises 1,500 feet above the surrounding desert. Although the top of the dome is located west of Cima Road near the Teutonia Peak Trailhead, this unusual geologic feature is perhaps best seen from a distance. Try the view looking northwest from Cedar Canyon Road, 2.5 miles east of Kelso Cima Road.

Much of Cima Dome was burned as part of the Dome Fire in August of 2020. Learn more here.
