Monday, July 11, 2016

Alt Names

Reese River Valley, Washington Canyon, Santiago Canyon, Cottonwood Canyon, Big Creek Canyon, Coldsprings

Last Known StatusOpen

This area offers hundreds of miles of desert trails in all directions that range from easy loose gravel roads to rugged terrain with steep climbs and descents. The old abandoned mining town called Wonder lies to the west, large lake beds can be found in the east and the best preserved Pony Express Station can be found just a few miles south.

The trails to the south take you over a two small mountain range into the Reese River Valley. On the other side of the valley are Washington, Santiago, Cottonwood and Big Creek canyons. Expect to stay a few days to explore the entire area.

A good base camp can be found at Cold Springs Station - they operate a cozy motel, gift shop, a campground with 25 RV hookups, Wi-Fi, a restaurant and bar plus an all you can eat fish fry held during the third Friday of the month. Direct trail access and ATV tours are also offered here. Call for current rates and availability.
