The Desert Queen Mine hike is designed for people who want to know more about Joshua Tree, but were reluctant to ask. Yes, it's vast with many aspects, but definitely understandable and, well, fun. And, that's what we're going to do on this hike - have fun. We'll hike to one of Joshua Tree's longest-running and most profitable mines, poking around old tailings, snooping sites where miners lived and worked, exploring the wash that led to additional smaller mines, discovering abandoned mining equipment, miner artifacts, and learning about desert plants along the way.
