Your rental car company likely wouldn't be too happy with anyone who braves this drive (and I darn sure wouldn't do it in my personal car) but if you are willing, the views are spectacular. Be sure and stop by Eureka Mine if you get...More

It's a long and somewhat rough drive to get here, but it's soooo worth it. The view is spectacular. The road is rough in spots, but passable with a high-clearance vehicle. There is an unmarked fork about 2 miles in from Emigrant Canyon Rd. The...More

A six-mile graded dirt road delivers viewers to one of Death Valley's most spectacular vistas, with views down into the valley, over to distant peaks and up and down the length of Death Valley. Legendary miner Pete Aguereberry's favorite viewing spot. See his old homestead,...More
