Hero: Lorman Mine (Aka Gold Crown Mine) - 29 Palms
small-aa Icon
In the desert near 29 Palms by Joshua Tree National Park is an amazing little secret of the desert, Lorman Mine also known as the Gold Crown Mine. Lorman Mine is a verticle mineshaft that is roughly 180 feet straight down. But in this case, the mine isn't the main attraction, it is the remnants of the abandoned mining camp that still remains. To get to this historic, but forgotten destination, you will need a 4x4 built for an off-road adventure. With over a dozen foundations and structures still remaining, this can easily be a stop when enjoying an overland trip down Old Dale Road. Thus the next time you are up for a new adventure, you should think about Lorman Mine near Doberman Mountain and Old Dale Road.
