Meadow Grove Road travels between Fort Irwin Road and Old Highway 58 and passes two points of interest, David's Cross and the Desert Tortoise Intaglio. The lore of David's Cross is that God instructed David to carry timbers from Death Valley, 120 miles away, and construct the cross still seen alongside the road. The Desert Tortoise Intaglio, in the primitive shape of a tortoise, is a roughly 40-foot-wide carving on the desert floor. Beginning offroaders easily manage the road in two-wheel drive. Dispersed camping can be found when following the camping guidelines of the BLM Barstow Field Office.
