Cutting through the BLM Ord Mountain subregion, Harrod Road provides expansive views of the southern Mojave Desert, and at spots, one can see out to the snow-capped San Bernardino Mountains to the west. The many connecting trails and spurs provide exciting exploration, with several leading to abandoned mines. The road follows a straight but very steep and hilly route, with many of the paths consisting of slippery rocks and slopes approaching 20 degrees. Only experienced drivers using four-wheel-drive vehicles with 4-Low and high clearance should attempt this trail. Camping is allowed along the trail when meeting the BLM camping guidelines.
