Clipper Valley is a vast, oval-shaped alluvial plain located in the eastern Mojave Desert, in San Bernardino County, California, in the south of the Mojave National Preserve. Interstate 40 passes the valley along its southern border, and Needles, California and the Colorado River are to the east.
The Valley is north of the Clipper Mountains, southeast of the Providence Mountains, and northwest of the Sacramento Mountains. Covering over 400 square miles (1,000 km2), the valley is large enough to hold most of greater Los Angeles. It has two prominent geologic features, the largest being the Blind Hills, a heavily eroded, flat-topped outcropping of rocky hills, and Halfway Hill, located near the center of the valley.
