Running northwest from Bouse paralleling Highway 72, La Posa Road runs across a broad plain of creosote brush with small washes lined with pale green palo verde and thorny dark ironwood trees.  The area is dotted with broad, flat gravel playas, which make excellent campsites.  Most are large enough for a group of vehicles.  Brush the scattered rocks away to make acceptable tent sites.  The elevated playas have 360-degree views of the area’s mountain ranges.

The dirt trail is well-maintained.  On the eastern end, it is wide.  The western end narrows and crosses the sandy Bouse Wash before intersecting Highway 72 at a gate.  The trail is suitable for 2WD vehicles.  Never cross Bouse Wash if it is flooded.
