    Charcoal Kilns

    The kilns were designed by Swiss engineers and constructed by Chinese laborers. It was closed after only 3 years of production. Due to their brief life and remote location, these kilns may be the best-preserved charcoal kilns in the West, a great industrial archeological site to study.

    From here there are trails to the 2 highest peaks in Death Valley National Park: Telescope (11,049 feet) and Wildrose Peak (9,064 feet). The elevation of the kilns is about 6,800 feet. It's not hot at all even in the summer.
