    As other reviews have stated, there are new "No Trespassing" signs up everywhere promising persecution to the full extent of the law. Since the entire area is like being trapped in the Twilight Zone, ...  more »

    Looked like a cool spot but once we got there we see posted signs everywhere stating to keep out. Rather disappointing but we did see beautiful salt beds and enjoyed the nature. If you are willing to ...  more »

    Go a little after it rains. The dirt road should be dry enough a day or two later, and the mud volcanoes need the rain water to bubble, otherwise it's just escaping gases. The whole area is great to check out if you're into this stuff. An active volcano where the Imperial Fault terminates and the San Andreas is born? Salvation Mountain? Bombay Beach? Hell yeah.

    Bring a pair of shoes you don't mind getting muddy. The sights and sounds feel other worldly. There is no fence or barrier preventing you from getting too close. The signs say private property but a Mecca ranger station brochure says its OK to view the site respectfully. Use McDonald drive to get here since its mostly paved.

    Going off of the previous review regarding it being ok to go just as long as you're respectful about it, we went here to check out the mud volcanos. It was interesting to see activity like this in such an unexpected area.

    An interesting place and pretty cool natural geothermic mini volcanoes, but it's in private property and it sucks that you've gotta trespass to see it. I guess it's a good thing there isn't that much else to see since you may be asked to leave. If you're in the area, check it out. But I'd say it isn't really worth a drive out there if you're not nearby.

    Very odd experience to hear the gurgling of the mud pots, but you must add this to your list of things to do if you are visiting Salvation Mountain and East Jesus. You may be disappointed if this is all you drove out here in the middle of nowhere for, but it is a nice addition to the list. Pro tip: Hold your nose when you exit your vehicle.
