McCullough Pass Trail provides access from the Jean, NV dry lakebed area on the west to Highway US95 on the east. The section that travels over the saddle and back down is very rocky but provides sweeping views of the Bird Spring Range to the west and the Eldorado Valley to the east. This is a powerline trail; many offshoots run to the individual towers. Downloading the GPX track will keep you on the correct path. Most of this trail is on BLM land. There were not any existing camping spots along the route. At about the 6-mile mark, you will cross into the Boulder City Conservation Easement. A sign on the road marks this. Past this point, no camping is permitted. The remaining section of the trail is rocky and has washboards and moguls that will bounce you around your vehicle. Take it slow, and next thing you know, you will be on US95.
