  • Great hike. Lots of ups and downs. Remember it gets cold in the evening. So pay attention to the time you are heading out. It's only 2 miles in,but that's 2 miles back too. No cell service so. Be better prepared. Great picture opportunities. Lastly It Is The desert..
  • Great hike. Good views in a few spots. It's not very hard, so I'd say almost any one could hike it. The lost mine isn't extremely exciting, but it is kool to see.

  • Great hike the mine is awesome too By the cool stuff to see on the way and a great view
  • In the late 1800s, miners dug around 300 mines in the lands now protected as Joshua Tree National Park. The Lost Horse Mine is one the best-preserved gold mines in the southwest area of the park.
