Challenging 4×4 climb to two amazing Adopt-A-Cabins.

This challenging hard-core route takes you to an old mining camp with two amazingly well-kept Adopt- A-Cabins, which are open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis. Signs say full-size vehicles should not proceed above the camp, where there’s a small bridge for ATVs and motorcycles only. (Bridge may be rebuilt in the future.) Green-sticker vehicles can explore Thorndike Mine above the bridge, but must turn around at the boundary to Death Valley National Park.


Trail Ratings Defined

Condition of trail varies greatly depending on recent storms. At times it may be impassable until volunteers repair it. Prepare for a narrow, rocky trail, very tippy in spots. We don’t recommend this trail for stock SUVs.

Submitted By Jim
BLM removed the bridge in 2018 and filled the gully with the rock. Now there are no vehicle limitations, and this trail can be combined with the Pleasant Canyon trail as a loop.
