Briggs Cabin is a wonderful dwelling maintained by the Friends of Briggs (employees from the nearby Briggs Camp) that is well stocked, has DC power, heated and running water, showers, toilets, multiple beds, and other amenities that are quite nice to experience so far from civilization. Please be sure to follow all instructions given for any equipment you use and take your trash out with you.
The Escape Trail (aka Fish Canyon) is a trail of moderate difficulty that a truck with good ground clearance and a decent tire should be able to navigate. This trail traverses Fish Canyon and connect Panamint Valley to Searles Valley across the Slate Range. There are no difficult obstacles on this trail, just a lot of hard rocks and a few spots that will test your articulation and approach/departure angles. This trail earned its name from a few families that escaped from Death Valley in the 19th century. The Panamint and Death Valleys are at a fine temperature during the winter time and a wonderful place to visit if you ever have a few days to spare. Enjoy the photos and find all of them here!
