interesting walk. We stayed at the Ryan campground so it was a very short way walk to the ranch. the remains were great for pictures.

Worth a visit for a ghost town atmosphere, but if you plan on traveling to Death Valley make your way to Rhyolite for something much more impressive.

The trail is hard to follow as it seems to lead to a few dead ends. There are a couple old brick houses (part of the ranch?) to see which was fun.

Cool hike super easy and the ruins are interesting. Great hike for kids and history buffs.

It is a very easy, flat hike out to the ranch. It is neat to explore the ruins of the ranch but the hiking is extremely easy.
