Hero: Keane Wonder Mine
small-aa Icon
This well-maintained gravel road goes into Death Valley's backcountry for access to one of the parks most successful mining areas, the Keane Wonder Mine and Mill. The mine and mill are one of the best examples of a historical gold mining operation in the national park. What is unique about this site is the well-preserved aerial tramway that still has the cables attached. The mine was first prospected in 1903 and was opened and closed at least twice before successful operations began. It was bought and sold several times after it was closed in 1912, but it never was commercially viable again.
