  • This was a nice side trip. We had such an educational day and there was a lot of history. We also did some looking for the super blooms. Excellent experience. Highly recommend this little trek off the beaten path!
  • The last few miles are a bit of a sketchy dirt road to get there but its a cool place to visit.
  • I heard Charcoal kiln and didn't know what to expect. They are massive and super cool and worth the visit.
  • Well preserved charcoal kilns. Easy drive to the kilns, even for a passenger car.
