The New Dixie Mine Road

The New Dixie Mine Road leads out of Pioneertown towards Big Bear. It also passes the Willie Boy Suicide Site, where I thought I'd go and pay my respects. Unfortunately, it wasn't that easy.

Approximate location:

From Interstate 10, take Highway 62 north 21 miles to Yucca Valley. Turn Left at Old Woman Springs Road (Hwy 247). Pass Reche Road and at 11.1 miles take a left at Landers Community Church onto New Dixie Mine Road. The unpaved road is suitable for high clearance vehicles only. Drive 6.6 miles and bear right at the fork. Drive another 6.7 miles down Ambush Spring Road and park. Walk the last 3 miles down Ambush Spring Road, which is in a designated wilderness area.

Wished I'd brought some burros and had a few more days to spend. Do not attempt this trip in anything lower than a jeep.
