Corn Springs Road takes you deep into the rugged canyons of the Chuckwalla Mountains Wilderness and is worth the trip to see the ancient petroglyphs. The road carves through this wilderness area, passing sun tortured mountains to arrive at a green palm tree-covered oasis dense with wildlife. The granite walls around the oasis are covered with ancient rock art or petroglyphs left by the prehistoric Indians over 10,000 years ago and represent some of the finest examples of rock art in the Colorado Desert. The road continues past the campground to old mining encampments, where it ends. Corn Springs Road is an up and back traveling 10.5 miles on a maintained hardpacked sandy dirt road and is wide and flat. The route is suitable for passenger cars as far as the campground. The BLM-operated Corn Springs Campground provides wonderfully secluded camping with nine prepared campsites having tables and fire rings, hand-operated pumps provide refreshing cool water, and the site has pit toilets.
