Tehachapi is a more laid back town. The meager services are spread out, though and require alot of walking.

Mojave has fast food, Motel 6, Safeway and PO all within reasonable walking distance.

The character of the 2 towns is night and day. I suspect that plays a big role when folks choose.

I'd recommend Tehachapi. It doesn't really matter, though. If you're looking to get in and get out the same day, Mojave is probably better but it's kind of a drag down there. If you want to take a day off, I'd have to say Tehachapi.

But really, there's not much to worry about. Just get your food and keep on trucking, only 150 miles to Kennedy Meadows!

Best Western in Mojave

Postby gg-man » Mon Dec 05, 2011 5:51 pm

You can get a free ride back and forth from the trailhead to the Best Western in Mojave. (I would confirm closer to your arrival.) With the all you can eat breakfast at the Best Western, close proximity to everything and the shuttle back to the trail it was the ultimate in convenience.

Ollalie Lake resupply

Postby rvman » Fri Dec 09, 2011 9:16 pm

I noticed that Ollalie Lake is not taking packages at this time or something, do you think that will change? I noticed there is a small city nearby Jefferson do you think that could be an option?
