Easy dusty road filled with fun things to stop and see. Beautiful views of nature and stars at night are simply incredible!

A nice ride that feels more remote than it is. Mostly pretty easy though watch out for some short sandy sections and approach them appropriately.
The historical nature gives it a nice edge.
There are some trails into the missile range but that's very well posted.
Best part is the third on the Salton Sea side.

Fun trail if you want to go fast for a long time. Ez to do in a sxs. I camped near the salton sea closest to the canal road that leads to the entrance. Fueled up in Blythe and hauled ass back. I should have recorded my way back not there. Made way better time. Saw some deer. Iguanas. And jack rabbit.

I can't believe no one has reviewed this! If you love off roading, this is a great trail to spend the day on. There are many turn offs and trails that you can investigate and can easily spend a weekend out just roaming the desert. We stayed on the main trail only because this was a part of a longer road trip. If you research online, you can find that there are a lot of hidden gems out along the trail (mining areas, cabins, weird lost and found). Be VERY CAREFUL though because the trail runs along the military base boundary lines. There are plenty of signs warning people to stay out but just be aware and careful not to take the wrong turn. Other than that the trail is beautiful, quiet, and a great place to camp out. We camped on a what I assumed was a lava bed (pictures above). Just be smart and careful and you will have a great time :)
