Hero: Black Mountain Area BM6381
small-sr Icon
BM6381 is a connector road between the Superior Valley and the Black Mountain subregions. The road follows the Grass Valley Wilderness's southeastern border over its entire length. Near the roads' southern end is the White Butte Deposit mine, which produced feldspar. This surface mining operation left great camping spots with flat bottoms and steep sides to shield them from the wind. The higher elevations of the mine provide wonderful views of the Grass Valley Wilderness to the west. The sandy gravel road sometimes suffers from deep moguls but is easily driven by a new off-roader with a two-wheel high clearance vehicle. The entire road is on BLM land, and dispersed camping can be found along its way when following the camping guidelines of the BLM Barstow Field Office.
