From Barstow, take I-15 north toward Las Vegas for 5 miles. Take the Fort Irwin Road exit and turn
left to cross the freeway. Stay on Fort Irwin Road for 17.5 miles to Mother Lode Road which is between Emergency
Call Boxes #5 and #6. Turn right on Mother Lode Road and go 2.5 miles. Veer right just before the big
power lines, go past the Yesterday Nursery (on the left) and cross the Power Line Road. Follow the road out
on the lake bed. Please DO NOT take any other roads from Fort Irwin Road to the lake bed. Mother Lode
Road is maintained better than the others.
