The Lost Horse Mine hike is for people enthralled with, but a tad overwhelmed by Joshua Tree National Park’s many nooks, crannies, and aspects. The Lost Horse Mine, nominated for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places, is a fine example of a smaller scale Western mine, and the hike will be an informative entre into Joshua Tree’s gold mining of yesteryear, along with its amazing cast of characters: some heroes and some, well, a little scallywag-ish. And along the way, we’ll talk about the Park’s signature plants and that big ‘ole fault to the south. After lunch at the mine, we’ll scramble a small side trail to a lookout point with a spectacular 360 degree view of the surrounding area, including Malapai Hill.
