Home / Mojave Preserve and Desert bikepacking trips / 2009, Spring: Mojave National Preserve / Day 16: Button Mountain to Baker by bicycle via Aiken Mine Road, with a stop at the Lava Tube, Mojave National Preserve 59

It's almost all downhill on this final day of the trip, with over 3100 feet of elevation drop (but much of it is slow riding due to rough road). Tourist visits to the Lava Tube and the abandoned Aiken Mine along the way make for a great day. 33.9 miles.
