Also, IIRC Blake mentions the road across from the Warner Springs glider port (Lost Creek?) which is a favorite of mine. The first few miles are paved jeep trail being very narrow & twisty... also little traffic and scenic.
I haven't yet taken that road over the ridge to the north.
There's a nice, unimproved campground right where the pavement ends as the road crosses the ridge (Lost Indian Campground?)

Palm Springs and the Cahuilla desert is just a little farther north (as is Joshua Tree) but I don't know of a short way down.

Lost Valley Road is part of the Cooper Ceinega TT that goes through Chihuahua Valley and ends in Anza, I ride it 1-2 times a month and it is never closed for weather. I suggest you Google Map it as there is one turn (go right) after you climb out of Lost Valley that can send you back the other way. If you take your eyes off the trail, you'll see Chihuahua Valley over you right shoulder so it's pretty obvious. At the end of Cooper Ceinega TT you'll need to go right (going left takes you through the rez which is a no-no without permission) and skirt the rez into Anza.

If you do get to ride the Palomar Divide and don't want to slab it into Anza you can jump off the 371 and dirt road it into Anza a couple of different ways.
