Dalton Wash Road leads to a spot known locally as Guacamole Mesa, which is also a trailhead for a mountain bike route.
We arrived in Virgin just as darkness overtook the area, so we left our rig on the side of Route 9 and scouted up Dalton Wash Road in our second vehicle. What I had heard about the road is indeed true -- the last half mile to get up onto Guacamole Mesa is quite steep and narrow, although not terribly rough. I'd recommend that only smallish rigs try. Also, be aware that there's some soft silt where Dalton Wash Road makes a couple of 90-degree bends around a fruit orchard about halfway up that would turn into peanut butter when it rains.
What we found atop the mesa was a collection of pretty sites tucked amongst the junipers, but no cell service. Wanting cell service, we couldn't justify the tough access and headed for Sheep Bridge Road (https://www.campendium.com/sheep-bridge-road) instead.
