“Unique Destination”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

This destination offers a sense of history. Although its remote, its a great drive for relaxing, no traffic, just quiet and fresh air.

“Undecided if it's worth it”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Though I thought this was pretty cool and adds to the story of Death Valley, the road was pretty rough those last two miles and there's not much else this way unless you have the appropriate vehicle for passage. We had an SUV, but the driving was rough. Stop if you are heading to Wildrose.

“On the way up to Wildrose peak...”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

These kilns are located at the Wildrose peak trail-head. By themselves, they can be skipped: interesting, perhaps, but not worth the trek all the way out there for their own sake.

“Cool charcoal kilns”
Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

We used this as our start/end point for a hike to Telescope Peak as the road was far too rough for our poor rental. Don't hike from here to Telescope...get up to Mahogany Flat if at all possible. The kilns are cool, if time consuming to get to.

An interesting trip into the mountains, through some high passes, ending up with these incredible, old kilns.
