Guru Road is 1.8 miles north of Gerlach on State Route 34. A normal green street sign is located on the left side of the road, marking the entrance.
With the exception of the Iron Butt Association's Memorial site, all of the art on Guru lane was created by one man, Dwayne "Doobie" Williams. His son and other help to restore and maintain the art works when they have time.
Guru Road is passable to nearly any vehicle up to the IBA Memorial site, after that it gets rougher and is high clearance vehicle recommended. It does return to State Route 34 after a couple of miles, but lighter vehicles would be wise to turn around at the IBA site marked by the red picnic table and license plate tree, (just past the Weather Rock).
This is a wonderful place with a funkiness all it's own. Many of the stones are tributes to people that Doobie liked and respected, and much of the art works are political statements that he wanted to make, in his own way. From "Ground Zero" to the "TV Station" and gems like the Weather Rock, it's worth taking the time to walk the road and read the stones and explore the art works there. Please do not take anything from Guru Road!
If you go, take water, bug repellant, sun screen and a hat most of the year. It's a wonderful place to sit and ponder many things as the clouds and sun create an ever-changing panorama out on the Playa.
