Over most of its length, Dupont Road hugs the eastern base of the Chuckwalla Mountains Wilderness and then crosses through a rugged valley to reach the southern side of the range. Beautiful views of the mountains and desert expanse treat you until the road begins transitioning from cloud-soft sand to a bone-jarring boulder-strewn trail with all eyes concentrating on the road as you crawl through a maze of rocks and obstacles. The BLM rated it as “Most Difficult” or Black Diamond, and the trail lives up to its rating. Only experienced drivers with raised 4-wheel drive vehicles should attempt this trail. Campers can find dispersed campsites along the eastern or BLM roadside. The BLM requests campers to use existing disturbed sites to limit the impact on the land.
