Mojave Road, Central
This is a fun trail that features sights such as the Rock House, the Government Holes, Marl Springs and the Mail Box. Since the entire trail is located inside the Mojave National Preserve, only street-legal vehicles are allowed.
Bert Smith built the Rock House in 1929. He came to this desolate place in an attempt to prolong his life after being exposed to poisonous gases in WWI. Although not expected to live long, he lasted another 25 years. You'll see signs for a loop hiking trail by the cabin. We recommend the hike. It leads to photogenic Rock Spring that provided water for the cabin. From 1866 to 1868, Rock Spring was the site of a military outpost.
