The Desert Bar, a.k.a. Nellie E. Saloon, is a very popular local hangout. Most people drive to it via easy Cienega Springs Road. Locals showed us a much more interesting backway to the bar. The route is remote and quite challenging. Unlicensed ATVs and UTVs can explore side roads west of HS245, but east is closed wilderness. Cienega Springs Road has numerous side roads to explore including the popular Gray Eagle Mine Trail.
Check to see when the bar is open. http://www.thedesertbar.com/
