Rally Point Notes:
The Death Valley Grand Traverse is set to be a 4 day/3 night adventure, which starts in the south end of the park and snakes its way north, and then eventually west to Alabama hills for the final leg of the adventure. The route includes hot springs, salt flats, abandoned mines, and ghost towns. All skill levels welcome, although there are some blue trails featuring rocks. The route may be altered to accommodate time constraints and/or variable weather (snow at high elevation).
National Park Entrance Fee: $30
