Giant Ledge Mine

Giant Ledge Mine Professional Review and Guide

"The New York Mountains, named for their dramatic skyline, are over 7000 feet tall and offer refreshingly cool camping and hiking in the remote heart of the Mojave National Preserve. Caruthers Canyon penetrates the range from the south and leads to the abandoned Giant Ledge copper mine. This short but scenic hike leads along a creek bed to the mine site. Botanists are especially interested in this canyon because it is home to a unique mutant of the singleleaf pinyon pine (Pinus monophylla) with beneath the granite spires of the New York Mountains. In 0.6 mile, cross the creek bed. Soon reach the top of a small rise, where you can enjoy fine views back to the south."
