Hero: Princess Pat Mine Road
small-sr Icon

Reaching far into northern foothills of Shadow Mountains and across the Shadow Mountain Tungsten District, the Bureau of Land Management's Princess Pat Mine Road morphs from a graded dirt road to a narrow rugged Jeep trail with steep inclines and descents. The 3,400-foot elevation provides sweeping northerly views of a rugged, empty desert, reminding one how far from civilization you are. Numerous intersecting trails offer opportunities to explore the many inactive mine claims in the area.

The rugged hills offer limited flat dispersed camping sites, but finding one provides wonderful quiet solitude while enjoying the far-off views.

A four-wheel drive high clearance vehicle is required to navigate through the foothills.
