Route Description for Inyo Mine Trail
The Inyo Mine Trail is incredibly interesting, as it leads you through an abandoned mining complex. That being said, it is important you are vigilant - especially when traveling with young children - around the abandoned mine shaft. We do not recommend entering the mine shaft itself, as it is old, and not guaranteed to be stable.
Having arrived at the trailhead, make your way along the Inyo Mine Trail to the north. Almost immediately, you will arrive at a junction within the trail, where you can choose to go in either direction, as both will take you through different parts of the complex. Whatever path you choose to take, they will end at roughly the same location. Take your time and enjoy the many historical buildings and artifacts before backtracking your steps towards the trailhead.
