The drive to the mine crosses some harsh-looking terrain and is anything but scenic. Your reward is seeing ruins of a massive 1890s gold mine, fully explained on a large three-panel kiosk at the mine. The closer you look, the more you’ll see. ATVs and UTVs are allowed, but they must be street legal. Continuing south at Waypoint 05 connects to the El Camino Del Diablo West, trail #99, in this book. A free permit is required to enter the Barry M. Goldwater Range.

The trail is very rocky, probably due to weather washing away the dirt and leaving just rocks exposed. Takes longer than expected because of rocks.
