Trail Overview

A moderate trail that starts off on a broken road just off the 395 Freeway on Manzanar Reward Road. You will climb up and over the hillside where you will be welcomed with an experience you will never forget as you venture deep into the largest Gold Mine. The most amazing part is that you can drive down into the mine. The trail to the Reward Mine is very rocky therefore 4wd and high clearance will be required to get to the entrance. Once inside the mine, the trail is easy soft dirt.
