Directions to the Reward mine. Just past the main entrance to Manzanar, there is the Reward road on the east side of Highway 395. Take the road and head east. The first thing that you will cross is the old WWII runway, keep going to the base of the hills. There is the remains of the mill site. If you look up the hill to the north north east you will see a head frame and part of the tram system. Follow the road heading north around the base of the hill and it will turn to the east. Follow it around the tailing pile and you will come to the mine adit. Down the mine about 1000 ft there is a concrete block wall on the right and a ladder going to the upper workings. When I was there 10 or so years ago, the ladder was in good condition.
