Oasis Visitor Center – Caravan to trailhead
Instructor: Kevin Powell, Author, Photographer
Hike Level: Moderate – 6 miles round trip
Tucked away in the remote Hexie Mountains is an old mining related mill site known as the Ruby Lee. Long abandoned and infrequently visited, this moderate, six mile hike will explore a classic desert wash, then, follow a barely discernable old mining road up to the actual mill site. Along the way the hiker will be treated to views of the vast Pinto Basin and the rugged Pinto and Coxcomb Mountains. If the wildflowers are blooming, the area could be ablaze with color and provide for good birding opportunities. Once at the mill site, there will be a brief discussion of the mills origin and history.
