Hero: Maumee Mine Road
small-sr Icon
Climbing up the slope of the Ord Mountains, this trail leads to one of the many abandoned mines in the area and offers expansive views across the desert floor to the Newberry and Rodman mountains in the distance. The trail ends at the Maumee Mine camp, whose rusting remnants spur the imagination of these miners' rough life. The actual Maumee Mine is 0.3 miles to the east of the camp. The road is rocky and uneven, requiring a lifted 4-wheel drive vehicle and an experienced driver to manage the terrain and tight turns. The best camping location is at the trail's end, where the mining camp provides a flat but still rocky area to set up chairs and enjoy the views and solitude.
