Hard to believe that in Death Valley there are pine/pinon type trees. Really cool to drive through. You can go in from Saline or from the racetrack up. Be sure to have a 4x4 or else you won't make it! Saw a few pretty donkeys at the pass.

We camped just below Hunter Mountain for a night during our week in the Valley. A high-clearance 4x4 is needed to get up there as you will encounter loose rock, washes and quite a bit of washboard. Nevertheless the drive is fun and the terrain is very different once you leave the valley below.

The uphill sections with snow were a bit dicey in our car, luckily the dirt was exposed on one side giving us enough grip to continue (after getting stuck a couple of... More

After visiting the Racetrack in Death Valley, we opted for taking the Hunter Mountain Road to Hwy 190, as the reviews of Lippincott Mine Road sounded bad. Starting from Teakettle Junction the road is excellent - much better than the Ubehebe to Racetrack Road. After traversing Hidden Valley, we missed the right hand turn off going up the mountain, and... More
