You are probably thinking of Last Chance Canyon. We last did a drive out there just over a year ago (Aug. 2002). We took a route off 14 a couple of miles north of the campground entrance, past the turnoff for the old Barnett Opal Mine, and down to the Cudahy site. From there we took Last Chance Canyon north, then east. You can continue on (southeast I think) and get to Burro Schmidt's. We turned off and headed northwest back to 14, north of where we started. This route is ok for a stock 4x4. I've read that the southern part of Last Chance Canyon, through the narrows, to the Randsburg Road is passable with some serious 4x4 driving. Since then, more of this land has been added to the State Park, so things could have changed.
