This is the quintessential desert hike. From the edge of the eerie Racetrack, you will ascend the dizzying heights of Ubehebe Peak, then drop into remote Saline Valley along a tilted ridge commanding breathtaking views, and finally return along a labyrinthine canyon blessed with a mile-long narrow corridor as straight as an arrow. Along the way, you will pass by several interesting historic mines and camps, including a locally famous lead mine and a forgotten copper property with striking blue ore. You will wiggle your way up tight narrows, cross fields of sparkling granitic boulders, marvel at 300-million-yearold fossils, scramble up dry falls, put your orienteering skills to the test across ankle-twisting fans, and play hide-and-seek with elusive mining trails that have not seen much traffic in over a century. Few places in the desert offer such a stunning diversity of landscapes and natural attractions in less than 25 miles.
