Haven't done it, but Dave Druck (AdventureDuo and a former SMB owner) does a really good job documenting his trips. See his write up here.

Get a copy of this: http://www.desertusa.com/web_cart/db/pages/5094.html

My friend has done it every year in Jan for the last 15 years. Below is a video of his 9 year old son running it in his little trophy kart.

Re: Mojave Trail anyone done it before

We did it last fall going west to east. Its pretty easy, just loose sand at the western end. Not a problem with a 4x4 van. We did it mid week and it was pretty desolate. Camped at Caruthers Canyon (spectacular spot) and Afton Canyon.

As mentioned, get the guide book.

here is another link you might like.

Re: Mojave Trail anyone done it before

I've done it. Also called Old Government Road in places. It passes through private property at times. Tread lightly. Not difficult.

It was the road travelers used because the Indians had water supplies in the foothills. So the road is close to the hills. Now with the car and a convenience store every off-ramp, the highway is no where near the hills and cuts straight down the middle of the valley.
