The road from Owls Hole Spring gets a little rough once it turns north at the junction with Ft. Irwin's test range gate, but smooths out once past the creekbed coming out of Owlshead Lake. The old road north into Lost Lake is still visable, but now marked with Wilderness Designation signage, although I've noticed recent tire tracks leading into Lost Lake (probably the Rangers tearing up the trail to make sure no vehicle traffic has been in the area). As of a year ago, you could still access the old road past the microwave tower turnoff clear to the China Lake range boundry (there's an old mine workings near its termination.) In the good old days, you could continue into Wingate Wash, and even north into Goler Wash, passing Meyers Ranch and Barker Ranch.
