Trail Overview

This short trail leads up to Russel Camp, which is an old mining cabin that you can stay at when visiting Death Valley. It has a honeymoon suite (not recommended), a kitchen, a solar shower, an outhouse, and even a carport if you can fit under the roof. It's worth stopping by to see the history and get out of the sun.
