Just to clarify for others, although there are "roads" in the area of the Epsom Salt Mine, this area is designated wilderness and can only be used for nonmotorized travel. The closest you can drive is to the microwave tower at the end of the Owlshead Mtn road.
The route in the wash that descends to the NWC gate is closed to vehicles, although the red carsonite sign is occasionally tossed aside. This is where one would begin their hike to the Epsom Salt Mines, being careful, of course, to stay on the outside of the NWC fenceline.
