the world's most spectacular roads

 

Old Dale Road is a scenic drive located in the Joshua Tree National Park, in southeastern California, USA. This old mining road traverses the eastern portion of the park from north to south. It’s one of the famous backcountry roads in the Joshua Tree National Park.

It’s a 23-mile (37.3-km) road. The weather on this zone is harsh. Not recommended for summer trips. If you take this trip it's best not to do it in the summer as it gets very hot. Two cars would be safer then one if any problems come up.

 

To drive this trail, you must have supreme confidence in your vehicle and your driving skills. About two thirds of the road is well graded dirt and the usual washboard. Only the portion across the mountain range can be tricky in several spots.

 

If you dare to take the risk and travel along this dusty and bumpy route, then make sure to be driven by someone who has experience of the road. The trail starts in Joshua Tree National Park, passes through the Pinto Basin and out of the park into the Pinto Mountains, where it becomes Gold Crown Road. The route ends at California Route 62, 15 miles east of the small desert town of Twentynine Palms.
