Get Map or Directions

Located in the mountains east of El Centro, is an abandoned gold mine town called Tumco. Today a few buildings and mine shafts remain. The mine shafts have very steep drop offs and are dangerous, so make sure you and your pooch stay clear of them. Also be aware of rattlesnakes in the area. It is best to visit during the fall, winter or spring months when it is not too hot. The remote site is managed by the Bureau of Land Management. Dogs must be on leash and please clean up after your dogs. To get there from Highway 8, east of El Centro, take Highway S34 North.
