Owner description: Exploration and digging at this elusive spot yields geodes, beautiful inside when split open.

The geodes are about the size of softballs. Get someone to show you where to look. Collectors generally cover them back up with dirt to preserve them, but they can be quite beautiful. A high-clearance vehicle is required.

Finding and staying on trail is a little tricky the first time. Just stay on the road most traveled. Nice views. Digging the geodes up is harder work than I thought. Bring a shovel & pick. Took Bradshaw Trail to Wileys Well Road to Geode Beds Road. On return we went Geodes Bed Road to Wileys Well Road and then continued on to Milpitas Wash and Hwy 95. There are a couple of outhouses in rough campgrounds on Wiley's Well Road - other than that - nada. Bring food and water. If unfamiliar with area, you should get another vehicle to go with you. A little remote. Vehicles should have good ground clearance - 4x4 nice but not absolutely necessary if you are experienced off road. We take this drive at least once a year - Have Fun! Remember: Pack It In - Pack It Out.
