Trail Overview
Wall Street Canyon Overlook
After Bismark Mine, you'll head up Wall Street Canyon to a high ledge overlooking the lower end. There are many camping options, and a lot of side roads, so you may want to spend a few days to get the most out of it. This is a nice area for green-sticker vehicles.
History
This area was one of the richest mining districts in California with over 500 mines. Bismarck Mine was one of the largest. The exposed catacombs at the mine are the result of modern- day strip mining over top of the original mine. To go to work, miners hiked up Wall Street Canyon from Calico and climbed 100-ft. ladders at the overlook.
Getting There
Exit I-15 at Calico Road near Yermo and head north about a mile to well-marked Mule Canyon Road on right. Drive in short distance to kiosk.
