Bakerstown is a trading post on the Mojave Freeway that connects Barstow to Old Vegas. 

It lies between Bakerstown to the west and Old Vegas to the east. 

Moly Mountain is also a strategic area in that it is a mountain pass that marks a natural boundary before one continues on the Mojave Freeway to get to Old Vegas. Any Refugee and Runner will probably pass through Moly Mountain on their way to LATMA or Barstow
