Overview

The Callville Wash South Road is a backcountry road that follows the bed of Callville Wash from Northshore Road south into the wild backcountry of Lake Mead National Recreation Area. About 5 miles long and ending on the shore of Lake Mead, this road leads through a rugged desert landscape with colorful sandstone bluffs, imposing black volcanic mountains, and fascinating geologic features, then ends across the water from Callville Bay. There are no structures or services of any kind along this road.

Presented here are photos of the return through the rougher parts. For details of the road, including a map and waypoints, see Callville Wash South Road.
