Hurricane Road is an easy dirt road that connects Elkhorn Road in the Carrizo Plain National Monument to Crocker Springs Road and Highway 33 by crossing over the Temblor Range. This road offers another option into and out of the Monument and is a good choice for those wishing to save time rather than make a full loop on Soda Lake Road or Elkhorn Road when sightseeing in the Monument.
The road is a graded, semi-maintained track of hard-pack desert dirt with occasional ruts and passable by 2WD sedans with adventurous drivers who take extra care when navigating over the rutted sections.
The GPS track ends where Hurricane Road transitions from dirt to the asphalt of Crocker Springs Road. Continuing along Crocker Springs Road will connect with Mocal Road and eventually to SR33.
There are no camping options along the road. However, it does cross Temblor Range Road, which lies within the approved Bureau of Land Management's Carrizo Plain Dispersed Car Camping Area. Consult the official BLM Carrizo Plain National Monument Recreation Map and Guide on where camping is permitted.
