"Markers of the Bradshaw Road: The Bradshaw Road was a passage between the Colorado Rive and the Coachella Valley. Only two unconnected, unpaved pieces of the road remain. The easternmost extends twenty miles west fro the end of 30th Avenue in the Palo Verde Valley. The other follows the Salt Creek Wash north of the Chocolate Mountains. At Wiley Well, named for the storekeeper and postmaster A. P Wiley, nine miles west of Blythe at the junction at the junction of Bradshaw Trail and Wiley Well Road, E Clampus Vitus has placed a commemorative plaque. Another point marked by the society is at Shaver's Well, on Box Canyon Road. A third site commemorated by the Clampers is at Chiriaco Summit on I-10, a point also known as Romero Pass and as Bradshaw-Grant Pass." -- Historic Spots in California, Riverside County
