This trail leads eight miles one way connecting the two developed campground in Mojave National Preserve.

This eight-mile trail (one-way) will take you through beautiful scenery, with numerous spectacular views of the mountains that surround the area. It leads uphill from the Hole-in-the-Wall Picnic Area to the Mid Hills Campground. Among the plant communities you will walk through are pinyon pine and juniper woodlands, Great Basin sagebrush, blackbrush scrub and several cactus gardens. The trail has a 1,200-foot elevation loss, so if you like hiking downhill start at Mid Hills. The trail is signed, but it requires a good eye to stay on course as it enters and leaves washes. Shuttle vehicles can be parked at the Hole-in-the-Wall Visitor Center or Wild HorseCanyon Trailhead.

Directions: From Keslo, Southern Trailhead: Drive northward on Kelso Cima Road 13.5 miles to Mojave (Cedar Canyon) Road. Turn right and travel eastward 4.5 miles to Black Canyon Road.
