History of EMHT

The East Mojave Heritage Trail created by Dennis Casebier and the Friends of the Mojave Road in the 1980s is a comprehensive tour through some of the most remote portions of the East Mojave Desert. In its original form, the EMHT covered 660 miles. Four hard cover guidebooks provide historical facts, information on local flora and fauna, detailed geographic descriptions, as well as cumulative mileage along the route.

With the implementation of the 1994 Desert Protection Act, which established the Mojave National Preserve and designated Wilderness Areas, the trail was closed in at least 13 places impacting a minimum of 75 miles – thus rendering the guidebooks useless as navigational aids – although still very useful for general guides and historical information.
