Hero: Cronise Lake Area - CL8337

The places to visit on this short easy trail make CL8377 a tempting detour. Shortly after the start is the Bonnie Keebler Harris grave, who died in 1872 while traveling on a wagon train heading west. Her grave has a permanent marker installed by the Mojave River Valley Museum. A short distance further, surrounding a small playa, a copse of rare Crucifixion Bushes, the same large thorns put on Jesus Christ's head. Two miles from the trail's end, a green rocky outcrop appears. A short hike away lie intaglios in the rocks and classic Indian sleeping circles where natives built brush shelters or wickiups. A short drive past the trail's end will take you to Afton Canyon and access to the BLM improved camping and the Mojave Road. Dispersed camping is available along the trail following the BLM Barstow Field Office camping guidelines.
