Wayside Road provides access from the paved Alamo Road to the Wayside RV Park and the superb camping at the west end of Wickenburg Alamo Road.  The wide graveled road begins on a ridgeline with expansive views of the vast plain on one side and Artillery Peak and its mountain range on the other.  The trail drops off the ridge to cross sandy Bulard Wash before its junction with Wickenberg Alamo Raod at the Wayside RV Park and its dirt airstrip.  

The only campsite along the road is at the intersection with Alamo Road on the southern end.  Given the extensive lakeside camping opportunities at the west end of Wickenburg Alamo Road and Alamo Lake State Park, it is a poor choice.

Watch out for the many feral burros that call this area home.  They are generally shy and harmless but can dart across the roadway anytime.
