Summit Valley:

Little Horsethief Canyon



Little Horsethief Canyon, located south of Horsethief Canyon in Summit Valley, CA, is a smaller, concealed valley that historically served as a strategic hideout for horse thieves in the 1840s. The area's hidden entry points and protective terrain made it an ideal location for staging stolen horses before their journey across the desert. This secluded canyon was instrumental in helping thieves evade capture from vaqueros and other defenders.

Directly south of Horsethief Canyon extending from the true pass of the Cajon where the Cajon Valley, Antelope Valley Wash, and Horsethief Canyon come together there is a smaller, well-hidden valley known simply as Little Horsethief Canyon. The entry into this backcountry is well hidden and protected on either end, the west from the Cajon and the east from Summit Valley and the Mojave River.
