Beginning on the sandy Mojave Desert floor, Alvord Mountain Road soon transitions up the rocky side of Alvord Mountain and arrives at the 120-year-old Alvord Mine. While idle since the early 1950s, the mine shafts and the roof-less stone shelter walls still stand strong. This up-and-back trail is very rough once on the mountain and requires a four-wheel drive with some clearance. Dispersed camping is available along the trail when following the BLM Barstow Field Office guidelines.
