Trail Information


Only 2 hours north of Los Angeles, lies one of the most amazing collections of canyons in the El Paso Mountain range. Previously home to the Kawaiisu Indians, the El Paso Mountains contain much of their heritage to this day. Later on, mining became the mainstay. Many mining camps of different minerals are spread across this mountain range. The Dutch Cleanser Mines, Bickel Camp, Cudahy Camp, Burro Schmidt Tunnel, Holland Camp and Holly Ash Mine are just a few of the attractions. This is a perfect trail if you love history, scenery, and are new to offroading.
