This is a 1 way drive through some amazingly unique land formations. (A favorite spot for photographers.) Many people often rent Jeeps to travel through here--it is not necessary, but with many of the roads in Death Valley, RV's are usually not able to make...More

This was our first brave move off the main highway after entering Death Valley national Park. There is just a small sign before a small dirt and gravel road, and we decided to explore it. The road is very winding and has steep ups and...More

Need something to do that doesn't require energy or overheating in Death Valley. Do this drive. It is not too long on a dirt road. Most cars can do it. The colors on the rocks are beautiful and you can see where they mined the...More

We saw a funny sign showing potential calamities on our way out of Death Valley, and decided to stop and take a picture. Little did we know this was the beginning of 20 Mule Team Canyon. It is a one way car only track. There...More

Provides a nice view inside a canyon especially if you don't want to do a hike. Doesn't take too long to go through. WARNING: I would not attmept this in anything too big or long. E.G., I saw some campers starting the drive. Not sure...More

This is a flat drive through low hills, and it's pretty twisty turny and narrow in places so I'm glad I wasn't driving an RV. The view of the hills up close was interesting but not a whole lot different from what we saw from...More

You drive through a series of smaller canyons up and down hills and fun curves. Not much of a view but you get to see the canyons from up close. No crowds!

Short but very sweet detour off the main road. Isolated, but spectacular scenery. Unlike anything I’ve ever done. Highly recommended!

This is a little out-of-the-way drive that's right off the main road into the Valley (contradiction, huh?). Well, it's out-of-the-way because I think not many people drive it. It was totally deserted when we drove it. The road winds around through a variety of little...More

Just that, a little loop trail that counts towards the I hike DVNP 2018 sticker. Kids enjoyed seeing the old wagons, especially toddlers who are in love with machinery now. Its a short loop and very easy trail with educational signs along the way.

I’d say anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour if you make stops. We drove really slowly but never really stopped for an extended time and it probably took 30 minutes. Take lots and lots of water and make sure your vehicle... More
