Something not right?

Description

Good spot for 1 night. We heard jets in the late afternoon, but it was very quiet at night. You can see the 395 and 58 in the distance, but we couldn’t hear the traffic. A few trucks came along Balsamo Road in the morning (starting at 7am). This spot is a pull through that would fit a trailer or a few vans. There are other spots and roads in the area for those who want to venture further from the highway.

Great spot far enough off the highway. Road in has a bit of washboard and could be difficult when wet, but otherwise passable. While other sides on the north side are possible, there is one developed curve-out that is fairly flat and could accommodate several smaller vehicles or a few larger rigs. Quiet at night, but occasional large dump trucks during the day. Scorpion Weed and other desert shrubs & flowers dominate.

i was headed to another spot on this road but it was no longer accessible. i kept going and found this pull through. solid ground and flat. it was the perfect spot to stop on my way to Remington hot springs. i have 3 bars of verizon 4g without using my booster.

Great overnight spot. Flat and quiet! Would definitely stay here again.

EDIT: It looks like the land to the right of Balsolmo Rd until you get to Kramer Road is actually private property. Left of the road, and past Kramer Rd is BLM land.

Nice flat pull out off the mining road big enough for a couple vans or a trailer. The mining road is smooth and easily drivable. If the spot is occupied, or you care to venture further, the roads into the desert are endless, especially if you head out towards and past the radar dome. Plenty of places to find solitude.

Had a strong Verizon signal. This spot was extremely windy with 40mph gusts the night I stopped, so fair warning. You might be able to venture in farther and find a more sheltered spot, but I got here at night.
