Hero: Mission Sweet Mine Road
small-aa Icon
Mission Sweet Mine Road takes you to one of the many mines in the area. Isolated and desolate, with nothing visible to the horizon to remind one of nearby civilization save the road you were just on. Barren and forsaken, this land has an unmatched and unique beauty. The area is special in that you have the freedom to camp and travel on BLM land but are bordered on three sides by Joshua Tree National Park Wilderness. The road passes the Mission Sweet Mine and ends at what were once living quarters for the workers. Seeing the mine workings firsthand, one can begin to appreciate what the miners endured to scrape a few dollars of gold for every ton of ore removed from below.
