Moving east from Highway 395 across the desert basin, Buckthorn Canyon Road provides access to the Iron Mountain area. The occasional joshua tree offers welcome shade and breaks up the views across this creosote bush-covered desert basin. A two-wheel drive vehicle would do fine on this road.

This BLM land provides many flat areas off the road for dispersed camping.
