Just posting this for those who to go out on the Needles sub.

Google up "San Bernadino County Road Closures" for the latest. Apparently the road was so severely damaged in the fall from flooding that it is still not open.

They just have a little section open so people can get to Twentynine Palms.

I'm sure you can find an ORV road to get to the nicest spots if you have a 4WD. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
