Starting at I10, Gas Line Road is entirely on BLM land and skirts over its 11 miles between the Orocopia Mountains to the west and the Chuckwalla Mountains to the east, and ends at the border of the Chocolate Mountains Bombing Range. This one-lane road is surrounded by dense Creosote scrub and other bushes native to this Colorado Desert. Military jets may fly overhead and are seen first before the roar of the engines catches up as they maneuver for practice bombing runs. You may see the rising smoke of a successful bomb drop off to the south. As the name suggests, the road provides access to a buried pipeline and power lines over its length. The road itself alternates between deep, soft sand and hard-packed gravel with no significant obstacles save for a few rocky sections of broken rock. This straight-through road provides a connection to at least six other trails, often leading to old mines to the east, with a final tie at the Bradshaw Trail.
