Burro Creek is a good area to collect Agate and Pastelite which are in abundance in different areas. One of the best is off of Burro Creek Crossing Road which is off hwy 93. One area is about 12 miles from hwy 93 on that road. It's all along the road and can be accessed with a high clearance two wheel drive vehicle. Not a bad road but there are some rough spots and it is a dirt/gravel road through a desert area. Be sure to bring water and sunscreen and watch out for critters including Burros (yes there are wild Burros in the area of Burro Creek) and cattle.
