Wildrose Trail, Death Valley National Park
Near Wildrose Peak, in the Panamint Range, are the Wildrose Charcoal Kilns. Built in 1877 to process the local juniper and pinon pines into charcoal for a mine about 20 miles away, they rather resemble bronze age beehive tombs from the Aegean area.
This is a great hike. Drive out Wildrose Rd to the Charcoal Kilns. Park and look for the trailhead sign to the north of the Kilns. Wildrose Peak is over 9,000 ft. Plan the hike to be a good 4-6 hrs r/t. Bring plenty of water and lunch/snacks cause you'll need them for energy. Great views of the Valley at around 2mi point. Another 2+ miles to the peak. Sign the guest book at the top of the mountain.
