  • The canyon is located on the Naval Air Weapons Station, China Lake.

All personnel entering a military installation are subject to searches and prohibited items, such as alcohol, marijuana (even with medical card), fire arms, ammunition, and similar items, will be cause for denial of entry. Personnel with criminal histories or legally classified as a sex offender will also be denied entrance, per Department of Defense regulations.
