Trail Information


With only a 2-hour drive north of Los Angeles, spectacular canyons can be observed in the El Paso Mountains. 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. State Motorized Trail System Route #6 passes just north of this location. So, whether you're overlanding, or just taking your 4X4 out for quick access to the many trails within the Red Rock State Park system, Hagen Canyon Trail is a great choice to see the essence of the El Paso Mountains.

Was a fun little part of the trail. It was a little sandy but no issues. Was cool to drive under the freeway. The 2nd part of it was a fun route as well.
