Hovatter Road Professional Review and Guide
"This easy trail, suitable for most passenger vehicles in dry weather, leaves from I-10 at exit 53 (Hovatter Road) and travels across the flat Ranegras Plain. There are panoramic views along this section—north to the Little Harquahala Mountains, west to the New Water Mountains, south to the Little Horn Mountains, and east to the Eagletail Mountains. The road is named after the Hovatters, a family that lived at the homestead site now contained within the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge along Red Raven Road. Special Attractions: Historic Harquahala Mining District; Harquahala Cemetery; Easy desert drive suitable for passenger vehicles; Salome—made famous by Dick Wick Hall. This trail is graded dirt but suitable for a normal passenger vehicle. It usually has gentle grades, is fairly wide, and has very shallow water crossings (if any)."
