Perhaps the most memorable thing about this Death Valley canyon is the trip you'll take to it.

This is a one way (east to west) road that starts near Rhyolite, NV and ends in Death Valley. It is NOT a road for motorhomes or Mini Coopers. While most of it is pretty easy going- there are a few tight turns and rocky...More

Took a cool out-and-back hike through the canyon. During the dry season, you can actually enter death valley by driving through. It's an amazing canyon with high walls and nice shade. The canyon walls are about 10-20 feet apart. There's also some cool rock formations...More

We were here the last week of September just a few days after the road had been reopened. There had been some flooding in some areas and those spots were still recognizable. You need a vehicle with high clearance. A sedan would be able to...More

This is one of the most incredible drives I have ever done. I would highly recommend a high-clearance vehicle, like a pickup or an SUV, because it is a rocky drive. The drive takes about 1 1/2 hours, but it is completely worth it. The...More

We rented a jeep at Farabee's for this drive & glad we did. You can do it in a sedan or non-4 wheel drive car, but the higher clearance is worth the rental. I wouldn't want to take my car over this road as there...More

No, the sun should not be an issue. Take sunglasses, keep your windshield clean, and you should be fine.
