off road driving
Accessible via Ocotillo Wells SVRA. Busy during the prime months (winter/spring), dead in the summer (too hot). Easy trail, and you don't have to do it out and back, there are other routes to exit once you get there.
Fun, moderate 4wd trail. Scenery is cool. I do not recommend going in summer. It was 116 degrees in July when we went. Not good! But we had the place all to ourselves!
The pumpkin patch at the end is pretty neat. Very odd. Worth seeing.
