Current Road Conditions

Road Closed

 High clearance vehicles are required past Corn Creek. 4-wheel drive is recommended. Road conditions may have changed since your last visit. Please be cautious.

  • Mormon Well Road

    Mormon Well Road is open from Corn Creek to US93. Desert Pass Campground is open and accessible from both directions.

    As always, back country travel using high clearance vehicles is strongly recommended. Four wheel drive may be required in Sawmill Canyon due to loose gravel conditions. 

  • Alamo Road

    Motorists wishing to drive on Alamo Road stand a very good chance of getting stuck at Desert Dry Lake. The dirt on the road has turned to powder, which is also referred to as “poof dirt.” The conditions are very hazardous.

    “Given the extreme heat and the slim chances of being found quickly, anyone whose vehicle gets stuck in that area is putting their life at risk,” said Christy Smith, Project Leader for the Desert National Wildlife Refuge Complex. “We cannot overstate the hazards drivers will encounter along this route.” 

    Additional information will be issued as conditions warrant..

    All spur roads are OPEN.
