Alt Names

Bell Road

Last Known StatusClosed

This area is private property and closed to motorized use. It was a large open area of undeveloped land with numerous flat desert trails, winding sand washes, and a large play pit. There were some steep drop-offs, deep holes, and a lot of scattered debris. Several of the trails and washes lead to a pit area, as does the main road. Motorized use or trespassing in this area is not tolerated and you may be ticketed.
