Home / Mojave Preserve and Desert bikepacking trips / 2010, Mojave National Preserve / Day 12: Malpais Spring to Nipton by bicycle, plus Ivanpah Valley sunset hike, Mojave National Preserve 49

I wish I had time for another day at Malpais Spring. Instead, today I'll backtrack my bicycle route from a few days ago to Nipton and do a short hike in the creosote-bush flats in Ivanpah Valley at sunset.

27.2 bicycle miles, 1900 feet of elevation gain, 3500 feet of elevation loss, plus 4.4 hiking miles.
