Mazourka Canyon

Mazourka Canyon is a trail of moderate difficulty that lies to the east of CA-395 and offers astounding views of Owens Valley and the Sierra Nevada mountains. A 4×4 truck with decent tires would be needed for this trip, specifically the rocky and steep sections in the northern and central portions. I started this trail from the northern end by taking Death Valley Road to Forest Road 9S13. The southern end of this route starts from Mazourka Canyon Road just outside of Independence. I spent approximately six hours on the forty miles of trails that I drove through though I wish that I had spent several days out here. There are so many side routes and hiking trails out here that it would take weeks to go through it all. I can’t wait to see this land again.

It takes a while to sort through and upload over 280 photos. Enjoy the rest of them on the full photo page!
