The Mojave Road Afton Canyon

Post by Jim_b » Sat Dec 08, 2018 6:03 pm

MDHCA/Friends of the Mojave Road volunteer John Marnell has been seeing reports that the water crossings in the Afton Canyon area are reaching a depth of 33+ inches in recent weeks. He's suggesting the following alternate routes:

Westbound travelers can leave the Mojave Road at Mile 114.8 to head north. This bypass will take you to Basin Road, and in 3.8 miles to the I-15. To resume the Mojave Road, you can go west on I-15, then use Afton Canyon road south, picking up the Mojave Road at mile 122.4 (page 171 in the Mojave Road Guide).

Eastbound travelers can take the I-15 to Basin Road south. At about 2.0 miles, bear slightly left onto a lesser graded road and at 3.8 miles you will reach the Mojave Road at mile 114.8. A left turn will put you back on the eastbound Mojave Road (page 163).
