Google maps calls it the intersection of Death Valley Rd. and S. Eureka Rd. The road behind my right turn signal there goes 10mi S to Eureka Dunes. After visiting the Dunes I headed down to Ubehebe.
Got it. I've been through here in my Jeep. Actually rescued a lost family of Russian tourists in this area a few years back. They was trying to use the park supplied map to navigate and were hopelessly lost -- after dark. (And if you've never been in this area after dark, you have not fully experience dark!) They had to follow me out in their rental Subaru after I gave them my spare 5 gallons of fuel.

Awesome area. You could ride a lifetime in and around DV and never get board. I love the higher elevations of the north end of the park.
