Trail Overview

The Dutch Cleanser Mine in Red Rock Canyon State Park is the perfect place to end your adventure or have lunch when exploring the area. The Mine is massive as you can walk in and explore for hours in the many openings it has to offer. During the Summer months, the Mine provides great shelter from the sun and provides you with a 10 to 15 degree cool down from the heat. The trail that leads to the Mine is very easy and can be traveled in 2WD during the Spring/Summer/Fall months but travel with caution during raining season as it can be slippery, especially as you approach the Mine itself.

Most of the trails in this area are very easy, occasional sand patches, lots of washboards, sometimes a deep rut or small ledge. The trails right by a couple of the mines had some bigger ledges but nothing that a good stock 4x4 wouldn’t handle easily. There’s a ton of stuff to explore here. Stop by Jawbone Station for conditions and an excellent free map of the trails. Expect ATV and motorcycles. Camping opportunities on BLM land.

Access Description

Head Northeast on RedRock Inyokern RD just off the 14 Fwy. Travel approximately 2.5 miles and take a right ( Southwest ) at the "T" intersection. Follow that to the trail head and begin the trail
