From Kingman, head west on I40 to the Yucca offramp (exit 26). From Needles, east on I40 to Arizona exit 26. Go west on the road as it turns to dirt. Right turn on an unmarked trail that heads more or less north into the wash. Once in the wash, follow the trail in the bottom of the wash west to just before the railroad bridge, then north up the trackside path to the CP.


Yucca CP was built sometime in the Spring of 2003. Before then, it was a 22.9 mile run between crossovers at West Griffith and east Franconia. Yucca has existed for a long time as a siding , which still exists about 0.5 mi railroad west of Yucca CP.
Very hot during spring, summer and fall. Yucca is home to the Ford Motor Company's Arizona Research Institute Proving Ground, where they drive Fords around in circles for days to see if they can survive the Arizona heat. If you're thirsty, there's the Honolulu Bar. Otherwise, it's Needles or Kingman for food and supplies.
