Overview

Grubstake Canyon Road is a rolling desert trail formed by the conjunction of the Mojave’s Pinto Basin and the foothills of the Eagle Mountains until the road makes a short climb in the foothills to its completion. This northerly trail road provides a great example of this desert transition region between the Pinto Basin north and the Eagle Mountains east. The road slowly rises at spots high enough to enjoy the far-off vistas of the Pinto Basin. The last portion of the road climbs quickly, allowing close inspection of 2 abandoned and unnamed mines.
