Mountain-bike route across Gold Valley, Mojave National Preserve, from Mid Hills campground to Woods Wash

A few miles further up Kelbaker Road is the "watch for tortoises" sign; I still haven't seen one yet
Kelbaker Road is a slow, gentle uphill, and I'll rise 1000 feet during the first 10 miles to reach those low hills ahead. The rise is almost imperceptible to someone driving a car. With close to 100F forecast, I need to get to higher, cooler ground.
