Getting to the Trailhead

From Las Vegas, drive out to the Mojave National Preserve Visitor Center in Kelso (Table 1, Site 1269). From the Visitor Center, drive northeast on Kelso-Cima Road to Cima (Site 0831). Turn left onto Cima Road and drive north 6.3 miles to a gravel pullout with a sign on the west (left) side of the road (Site 0847).

The trailhead is not well marked. Driving north, watch for signs announcing the White Cross World War I Memorial (a memorial on private land for Christian soldiers). Just past the memorial turnoff (on the right), pass a curve-right sign, and watch for trailhead parking on the left. Park here; this is the trailhead.
