DRIVING ROUTE 

  • Take I-10 east through Banning to SR 62.
  • Go north and east on SR 62 to SR 247 in Yucca Valley. Go left (north).
  • Drive 11.5 miles to the New Dixie Mine Road. Turn left. Note your odometer and go as follows:
  • At 8.0 miles, fork. Go either way as the roads rejoin after 1/4 mile.
  • At 8.6 miles, fork. Go straight.
  • At 9.2 miles, fork. This is the turnoff for Meeks Mountain. Turn right. Turn right again immediately.
  • At 10.0 miles, the road drops into a wash.
  • At 10.1 miles, the road leaves the wash on the left side.
  • At 10.8 miles, two forks. Go left at both. Park here. (The dirt road beyond this point becomes very rough and must not be driven beyond the Bighorn Mountains Wilderness boundary at 5720'.)

HIKING ROUTE 

  • From the parking area (5327'), hike 1.4 miles northwest along a dirt road.
  • Continue north on the dirt road over a couple of bumps for another 1.2 miles veering left at all forks.
  • The register is not found on the highest bump in the area, but on the top of a rocky outcrop at the northwest corner of the plateau, about 40' to the left (west) of the road. Just beyond this spot the road drops down to an obvious vista point with an impressive view of desert floor.

SPECIAL CONDITIONS

The New Dixie Mine Road is very sandy and not recommended for passenger cars. High clearance or 4WD vehicles are required.
