Eagle Mine Road - Joshua Tree National Park
Beginning 6.5 miles north of the Cottonwood Visitor Center, this dead-end dirt road runs along the edge of Pinto Basin, crosses several dry washes, and then winds up through canyons in the Eagle Mountains. The first 9 + miles of the road are within the park boundary. Beyond that point is BLM land. Several old mines are located near this road.
Prickly pear cactus are found in all of the deserts of the American Southwest. Most prickly pears have large spines, actually modified leaves, on their stems and vary in height from less than a foot to 6 or 7 feet.
