We were in the area taking various jeep trails and dirt roads as part of a four-jeep convoy. Because of mechanical issues, we decided to forego Lippincott Road (a treacherous 4x4 route for experienced drivers only) and took the tamer route through Hunter Mountain Pass. There were a few ruts and the descent was steep enough to be fun. Storms... More

This route is a favorite of mine because its accessible by most 2 wheel vehicles and will get you over to tea kettle junction and then to the Race Track Playa or Ubehebe Crater. Its also a way out to the Western part of Death Valley and off to the Interstate. You pass through pastureland, a mountain pass, and some... More

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.

We have been camping at hunter cabin for many years and are glad to see that everyone is keeping the area clean. Last summer we found numerous diabetic hypo needles in the area and would hope that the person would not leave them around as it is unsafe. Will be camping again this year around last week in april and... More

My wife and I came over the Hunter Mountain road in our Toyota Rav4. Thankfully we have 4 wheel drive or we would still be stuck up there! 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
