Overview: Ashford Canyon is located in the southern Black Mountains of Death Valley. For most people the highlight of this hike is the Ashford Mining Camp, located in a scenic and remote canyon. With its old cabins, partial furnished rooms, and mining structures, this well-preserved camp and surrounding mines provide an interesting glimpse of life in a remote gold mine camp occupied by the Ashford brothers from January, 1907-1915. Various interests worked over 4000 feet of tunnels off and on until the early 1950's when the property was finally idle for good. Harold Ashford estimated that the total production from 1907-1950's had sold for $135,000 about half as much as was invested.
