The 139 mile Mojave Road is filled with scenic beauty, history, and a sense of adventure it is no wonder it has such an iconic stature. Formed as an early Native American trade route then an east-west passage for settlers, the road has a long history and is also called Old Government Road. Today it is one of the more famous overland routes in the southwest. Although the road is not extremely technical, the sense of adventure you get by being so deep in the desert is what makes it worth the trip.
