Hero: Cadiz Road
small-sr Icon
Cadiz Road hugs the Arizona California Railroad as it passes between the Cadiz Dunes Wilderness and the Old Women's Wilderness, ending at the famous Route 66 highway. Creosote bushes dot the surrounding Mojave Desert, and occasional crossing washes with their underground water allow lines of green trees to survive. Keeping the drive interesting are several abandoned mines and other artifacts to explore. The road is wide and flat, and its sandy surface is graded flat. As this is BLM-managed land, the flat desert floor provides good dispersed camping locations along the way.
