Microwave Tower Road is a 4-mile dead-end road that leads from the town of Goodsprings to the Potosi Tower radio equipment site. The road climbs sharply, gaining 1,700 vertical feet in just under 4 miles, and twists through numerous switchbacks as you make your way up the mountainside, taking in spectacular views in all directions. From the summit, breathtaking views all the way across the California border and down into the Las Vegas strip will make this trip well worth the drive. The road surface is generally two vehicles wide the entire way, with a few slightly narrower sections but nothing on the edges of the cliffside. The road is well-maintained and smooth the entire way, making it suitable for any vehicle.
