There's some cool stuff to explore along the base of the hills, too. We found an old copper mine when we were up on top of one of the hills. I projected a waypoint on my GPS so we could find it when were were back down at the bottom. It was fun to check out.
On GoogleEarth there's a HUGE "X" marks the spot bomb target out on the lake bed, which I wanted to check out next time I'm down there.
If you are really lucky you may come across some 50 year old live ordnance! Last year somebody found an old bomb, which they called in and bomb squad came out to handle.
On the downside, it's hotter than hell out there. Even in April when we were there. The wind is brutal, expect to get yourself and everything you own sandblasted.
I have no idea about riding a quad on the hardcore trails though, they are truly the most gnarly trails I've ever seen... I won't take my 4runner down there, since 35s and one locker aren't enough, if that's any help (unlike Rubicon/Fordyce which my 4runner just walks).
