“Visit a historic old mine site with sweeping views of Death Valley.”— Bruce Hope
There are no amenities or water at the trailhead, only a large gravel parking area. Bring extra water, shade, sunscreen, and salty snacks along with you.
There is an information board at the old mill site and the trail—the old mine service road—to the mine itself goes left (north) uphill from here. The trail climbs steeply—sometimes very steeply—up the ridge, past several of the old tramway towers, for a mile to an old mine adit with a wooden door. Past that, the trail levels off a bit and contours for 0.5 miles to the ore bin and upper tramway terminal. The trail continues on up for 0.3 miles or so to the mine itself. Enjoy the history here and take in the expansive views out over Death Valley, then retrace your steps.
