Frog Creek Road (SC47) rambles over a flat, high desert floor at a 5200-foot elevation just south of the Scodie Mountains. A spring drive through here will treat visitors with hills covered in yellow desert flowers and groves of healthy joshua tree. This straight-through trail has several intersecting driving and hiking trails. The road begins at the intersection with Bird Spring Road and ends at the paved Kelso Valley Road. The Pacific Crest Trail intersects Frog Creek Road at about its halfway point.

Frog Creek Road is almost entirely a soft sandy trail with short sections of exposed rock. A beginning offroader would enjoy this easy trail using a high clearance 4WD vehicle.

Suitable spots for dispersed camping spots with existing rock fire rings can be found along this route and enjoyed when meeting the BLM Camping Guidelines. During high fire danger, campfires may be restricted, and if planning to camp here, one should review the Campfire Restrictions and have a Campfire Permit.
