Longer hike, longer views. less impressive.
Cool and pretty easy hike.
A moderate hike with of course an amazing opportunity to view the abandoned mine. For me however the highlight of this hike was on the far eastern part of the hike when you're on the side of the mountain looking out towards the plains of Joshua Tree. There is something special about not seeing anything manmade for miles and miles.
It's a must do! The hike is relatively easy, not technical just lengthy but the work is rewarded by the old Mine.
Really nice. My first experience of hihing at desert.
