  • This is a pleasant walk around an old mining area. Plaques labeled everything. Lots of old machines and wagons.

  • One of the easy stops to make while in Death Valley. The loop is short and offers some great views up and down the valley. For those who enjoy photography, this is a less frequented stop that you can use to setup some interesting shots at.
  • A great stop through Death Valley National Park (approx. 10 minutes drive from Furnace Creek). Interesting walk around the old mine. Main reason for the stop was to gaze at the stars. However, we visited during a Full Moon, which meant the night sky was too bright. If possible, plan a trip during the New Moon.
