East Mojave Heritage Trail #3
Rocky Ridge to Fenner
Friday - Sunday, October 26-28
Leader: Nelson Miller
Meet Friday, October 26, at 11:00 a.m. at the Shell Station/DQ at the southwest end of Baker, 71808 Baker Blvd, Baker, CA 92309.
This trip will focus on the side trips and sights to see along the way, rather than necessarily completing the entire route. Total trip is about 200 miles with gas at Ludlow near the midpoint and Fenner at end of trip. Some of the sights may include petroglyphs, lava falls, Rocky Ridge (steep wagon descent), Sands (plank road), Crucero, Mesquite Springs, Desert Megaphone, T and T railroad, Broadwell Dry Lake, Ragtown, Bagdad-Chase & Onyx Mines, Kelso Dunes, Kelso Station, Vulcan Mine, and Providence Ghost Town. Some of these sights may involve short hikes up to about a half mile. You can purchase the Guidebook to the East Mojave Heritage Trail, Rocky Ridge to Fenner by Dennis Casebier from the Mojave River Valley Museum (Barstow) or the Mojave Desert Heritage and Cultural Association (at Goffs). If you are interested let me know and I will try to have some available on the trip.
We will dry camp Friday and Saturday nights.
