To access Bradshaw Trail from the west, travel south on Highway 111 past the Desert Cities toward the area of the eastern side of the Salton Sea. When you pass the intersection of Parkside Drive, start counting. At 18.4 miles, turn left on Hot Mineral Spa Road and go 3.6 miles to the end of the pavement. Continue along the dirt road; go left and travel alongside the American Canal for 8 miles. The Bradshaw Trail trailhead will be on your right.

If you are already on the Bradshaw Trail and travelling west, just reverse these directions to get to Highway 111: from where the Bradshaw Trail crosses the American Canal, turn left, travel alongside the American Canal for 8 miles; go right and continue along the dirt road until it becomes pavement, then go 3.6 miles to Highway 111.
