Below is a selection of roads for this area. I have not driven every road in the area, and not every road I drive is worthy of ending up on this list. If there are any roads that you feel should be listed and don't see below, let me know.

In an attempt to better explain what the road is like, I have also developed a rating system for the roads I drive. These reviews are based on personal preference and perspective, but hopefully they will help you decide which route(s) to take on your next drive.

Fun . . . . . . . . (1-5, 5 being best)
Difficulty . . . . .(Low, Medium, High)
Traffic . . . . . . (None, Light, Medium, High)
Driveways . . . .(Amount of driveways & cross traffic; None, Light, Medium, High)
Condition . . . . (Road & surface condition; Poor, Fair, Good)

With no major cities or real destination points, this section of the State doesn't get a lot of attention. Other than a long weekend loop through and around Death Valley I really haven't spent a lot of time on the roads out here.

The benefit of being the "middle of nowhere" is that there aren't many other people or vehicles out here. If you find yourself in this area a lot of fun can be had, both with mountain roads and high-speed stretches in the middle of the desert. In the winter watch out for flash floods in the lower areas and winter closures for the mountain passes.
