In the Las Cienegas National Conservation Area, East Yucca Farm Road runs between the historic Empire Ranch Headquarters and Highway 82 near Sonoita. The well-maintained track passes through a sea of tall canvas-tan Sacton Grass cut by several shallow sandy washes lined with dense mesquite and the occasional towering cottonwood tree. The Whetstone Mountains dominate the eastern skyline. The Santa Ritas climb skyward to the west, often holding a snow cap well into the Spring. Watch for wild turkeys, pronghorn antelope, and deer alongside the trail. And, of course, this is a working ranch, so watch out for the cows.

The easy road has several nice campsites along the way. It also passes the Cieneguita and Road Canyon Camping Areas.
