To get to Sandstone Canyon, you'll need to navigate Split Mountain Gorge. You'll follow Split Mountain road south through Ocotillo Wells toward the Vallecito Mountains. Just before Split Mountain road terminates at a mine, Fish Creek Wash breaks off to the right/west. These routes are open to street-legal vehicles only. Fish Creek Wash starts out as a wide flood plain, but soon becomes confined beneath canyon wall hundreds of feet high.
