This short trail runs to several historic mining ruins along the Sonoyta Mountains. From the southern end of the Campground Loop trail, the well-marked Victoria Mine route angles to the west. It wanders across well-drained hillocks where creosote bush and greasewood live sparsely amid a desert pavement of gravel and sun-baked sand. The path occasionally drops into small ravines as it crosses southward-running washes. In these swales, greater moisture allows the growth of mesquite and palo verde, and permits cacti to grow abundantly. Looking northward up the washes, travelers can see a gap in the hills revealing the distant crest of Pinkley Peak. To the south, the Sonoyta Valley is bounded by the rocky wall of the Sierra Cubabi, across the Mexican border. The trail approaches a low range of granite hills, whimsically named the Sonoita Mountains. This range appears to be little more than a rumpled collection of bluffs, but in fact it is the oldest mountain range in Organ Pipe National Monument.
