Oro Grande Mine is an easy trail not far from Victorville, California. The trail takes you along dirt roads past the abandoned Western States Mine until you ultimately reach the Oro Grande Mine. The mine is closed off and appears partially collapsed, so do not attempt entry. Although there are bumps, ruts, and small rocks, a 2WD vehicle with decent ground clearance can manage this trail. You can explore other trails from the mine or return the way you came. There are lots of unmarked side trails in the area, making it easy to get confused. Dispersed camping is allowed, and you can find a few open areas along the path that would make good campsites.
