The initially paved road runs in a plumb line across the Detrital Valley toward the White Hills. The settlement of White Hills was located on the western edge of the White Hills. Today it can be found on either side of the road that runs through the subdivision. Most of the site is privately owned. Please respect the landowners’ wishes and stay on the road. There is little left to see in any case—mine diggings, tailings piles, adits, and a few pieces of rusted mine equipment. Special Attractions: Historic sites of White Hills and Cyclopic; Joshua tree forest; Views of Hualapai Valley and the White Hills. High-clearance 4WDs are preferred, but any high-clearance vehicle is acceptable. Expect a rough road surface; mud and sand are possible but will be easily passable. You may encounter rocks up to 6 inches in diameter, a loose road surface, and shelf roads, though these will be wide enough for passing or will have adequate pull-offs.
