Mojave National Preserve is always open. Information centers maintain regular hours of operation. In support of the State of California's Regional Stay at Home Order, visitor centers and information centers are temporarily closed. Roads, trails, restrooms, and overlooks remain open.

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 of fall mark hunting season.
