Lemoigne Canyon
A dirt road to the mouth of Lemoigne Canyon takes off from the highway a few miles above Stovepipe Wells. The canyon splits into a north fork and a south fork. The Lemoigne Mine and associated cabins are located in the south fork. Also in the area is the Kerdell Prospect, which can be reached via a trail that begins at the Emigrant Campground.
