    Questions for those who have been through Death Valley

    Very cool, thanks for the info. What I'm currently thinking is we'll camp near Lotus Mine located off of Goler Canyon for day 1. If not there, maybe somewhere around Barker Ranch. That way, for day 2 we have much more time exploring butte valley and warm springs. I currently have just one rig...

    Dave's 30th B-day Off Road Expedition through Death Valley! 3/1 - 3/4 - 03/01/2018

    Guys, I've made a change to the route. Mostly just to Thursday. We'll be going straight to Ballarat and to Goler Canyon. We'll dry camp within the area, maybe near Lotus Mine, maybe near Barker Ranch, but somewhere along that area. This way, we won't be so rushed going through Mengel Pass...

    Questions for those who have been through Death Valley

    It is. haha I feel like that's all I do with my spare time. I'm either planning trips or researching new areas for future trips. Thanks for all your info as well as everyone else. I have a roof top tent and don't plan on staying inside the cabins, just around them. So staying at a cabin is not...

    Dave's 30th B-day Off Road Expedition through Death Valley! 3/1 - 3/4 - 03/01/2018

    Mack, I don't know much about full size rigs, old or new, when it comes to off roading. I don't think some of these trails are suited for full size, longer wheel base vehicles. I would do your research on these trails and see if you think you're capable of tackling them. Thanks for your interest!

    Questions for those who have been through Death Valley

    Hey guys, as I'm in the process researching for my upcoming Death Valley trip, I ran into a few questions I couldn't find much info on. I'm looking for backcountry camping options. I have my eye around Butte Valley or just before. What are the various cabins like? Is there room for multiple...

    Dave's 30th B-day Off Road Expedition through Death Valley! 3/1 - 3/4 - 03/01/2018

    Hey, thanks for the info. Day 2 is a busy schedule. I may look into another possible scenario. My main motif to choose campgrounds was I like to have campfires. Can't have campfires anywhere else in the park. I do like backcountry camping, the more I think about it, the more I'm interested in...

    Dave's 30th B-day Off Road Expedition through Death Valley! 3/1 - 3/4 - 03/01/2018

    I think you still could. The only difference is on Friday, you guys could do some hiking trails or other 2wd roads while we're out. A 2wd locker should be fine for Thursday's and Saturday's trails. The hardest one being Chloride City & Chloride Cliffs. Look into those if you're interested in...

    Dave's 30th B-day Off Road Expedition through Death Valley! 3/1 - 3/4 - 03/01/2018

    Hey bud! In my honest opinion, I wouldn't risk it. You might be able to partake in Thursday's and Saturday's trails, but Friday wouldn't work. I use trailsoffroad as one of my references. Here's a few links to give you an idea. The hardest (Friday)...

    Dave's 30th B-day Off Road Expedition through Death Valley! 3/1 - 3/4 - 03/01/2018

    Right on, buddy! We'll keep in touch until then. And for anyone else that's done these trails in Death Valley, am I cramming too much in on this route? Can I get through Coyote Canyon, Mengel Pass, and out to Badwater Basin in one day?
