  Barry Goldwater Air force Base, is south of Interstate 8, and you need a permit to ride in this area. You will need to stop at the Air Force Base,  in Yuma and have your title of your OHV, Drivers License, proof of ins.  On the days you will ride, you must call the number and report it. When you are out riding, you might see U.S. Border Patrol out there. You might see some illegals.
  There was a map to follow thru the desert on trails and roads, we even came across old spent shells, and army tanks.  Down one trail we found a mock middle eastern town, with buildings, train tracks and helicopter.

70 degrees temps for January was great.  Day trip of 40 miles, we saw Betty Lee Mine, a natural water tank and a hollowed out rock, which resembles an igloo.  The DANGER sign was at the entrance, but this was the area we had a permit to ride into??!!
