I've been there several times, as I sold fuel and lubricants to the site before solar panels were installed to provide power. When you travel the road, keep watch for a deer herd and other desert animals. Across the basin to the south is the historic Mojave Road, an ancient Indian trail and wagon and stage route. It is 4WD, over 120 miles. The Soda Springs and surrounding area are serious desert, beautiful, haunting, and dangerous if caution is not observed.
