Amargosa Overlook

Amargosa Overlook Professional Review and Guide

"The drive up Echo Canyon to the trailhead is spectacular, much like Titus Canyon, with a visit to an early twentieth-century mine site to break up the trip. The view from the edge of the Funeral Mountains is breathtaking, a peak experience without the ascent. This hike, with an elevation gain of less than 700 feet spread over 3.6 miles, ends on a peak above the Amargosa Valley.

A mountain view without the mountain climb! The drama of Echo Canyon is behind you, but the view ahead is worth the walk.
From the trailhead your pathway lies in the gravel wash through the tight gap. Out of the wash and on the desert floor, the winding route is an old jeep track. If you happen to lose the old roadbed, keep following the drainage and you’ll spot it again."
