Rt 66 Section 6 Maps 91 - 95 Needles to Amboy
« on: February 08, 2016, 01:09:52 pm »
If I read the maps correctly, when they were published, a temporary route was put into play on Rt 40 heading west from Fenner, then south at exit 78 towards Amboy.  Is this temporary route using Rt 40 still allowed?

Can we ride Rt 40 between Needles and Fenner ?

Thanks, Jim

I do not know the answer to either of your questions, but I will say that I loved riding through the Mojave Desert, and there's no way I would want to do it on Interstate 40. The desert has a certain majestic beauty that cannot be appreciated from the interstate.

Thanks John, did you take the ACA Rt 66 or some other route through the Mojave ?

I stayed on the ACA route and spent nights in Amboy, Newberry Springs and Victorville. Read more at:
