The Lakebed is Closed!

Please help preserve the playa's surface by not riding on the lakebed when wet! 


Our Mission

The Friends of El Mirage (FOEM) are users of the El Mirage OHV Open Area that promote the preservation, multiple use and restoration of this unique area. FOEM is a varied group of outdoor recreationists who are extremely active in promoting the positive aspects of vehicular access to this multi-use land, and protecting that right.

The ultimate goal of FOEM is to support and develop projects to improve, protect and maintain existing trails and dry lake bed to promote understanding, education and cooperation between all users.
