Trail Canyon is located on the east side of the Panamint Range right below
Wildrose Peak. It is possible to drive into the canyon from the bottom or to
hike into the canyon from the top of the north fork of the canyon.
The main historic attraction of the
canyon is the Broken Pick Millsite and the Tarantula Mine. Other sites of
interest include Morning Glory Spring and Dripping Spring.
