Home / Mojave bicycle-camping trips / Spring 2011: Mojave National Preserve and area bicycle camping / Day 12: Five-springs hike in the northern Mid Hills/New York Mountains, Mojave National Preserve /
The route back to my Pinto Valley campsite will be cross-country, with lots of little ups and downs
I still have about four miles of hiking ahead of me. I start by dipping down into a shady wash, which I follow for a hundred feet or so. It's easy to imagine a vigourous stream of water here in the sand.
