sorry....I just had to laugh at that name. I can't help you find a route, but you just have to find our where that name came from!

The Southern Paiutes Indians, who occupied the Pahrump Valley centuries ago, named it "Pah" - meaning water - and "Rimpi" - meaning stone or rock. Pah Rimpi became Pahrump, the Paiute description for springs or flowing waters emerging from rock.
