I found this little side trip through Tripadvisor and was so glad I did. We were staying at Barstow on the way to LV and decided to have a little side trip. My boys aged 11 and 14 loved what they called the adventure. We were also very priviliged to have spotted some road runners in the scrub and watched them for a while. The road is very accessabile for all vehicles and the views are worth the drive out there.
