Highlight: Hollow Hills Access
Only a short distance North-East of Baker, California, is the Hollow Hills Access trail. Originally used for access to the Jumbo Mine, the trail is now part of the Hollow Hills Wilderness and managed by the Bureau of Land Management. The trail passes into the Hollow Hills Wilderness via a road easement for motorized vehicles on their way to the Jumbo Mine. Hollow Hills was designated as a wilderness in 1994 and consists of 22,000 acres of hills and large, broad alluvial slopes east to west. The low hills in the east crawl toward the Turquoise Mountains. The trail provides extraordinary opportunities for solitude for this seldom-visited area. You will drive through the typical Mojave Desert with sparsely spaced creosote bushes and desert holly. Some of the hills you see on your approach are tailings or leftover material from the now-closed gold and silver Jumbo Mine where the Hollows Hills Access trail terminates at. The road has collapsed at about the halfway mark and is now impassable from this point forward, but with a 0.6-mile hike from here, you can still visit the abandoned Jumbo Mine.
