Charley Road: Escarpment of the El Paso Mountains, to Goler Heights, and to dispersed camping area.

A group from the 1998 Desert Research Symposium (San Bernardino County Museum) views the trace of the Garlock Fault. This depression on the south side of the Garlock Fault was formed when Goler Wash was offset left-laterally (Calzia and Reynolds, 1998).

The cabins at the base of this 2530 foot high scarp are owned by the BLM as part of their Adopt-A-Cabin program.

A successor to this group visited this location again as Stop 1-1 in the 2009 Desert Symposium.
