Recreational Clinics - Adventures and Events - Death Valley Expeditions

Death Valley Expeditions

Event Location: Near Ridgecrest, California

This is a 4 day trip covering the north and west end of Death Valley, Saline Valley and Eureka Valley. (Saline Valley and Eureka Valley are also part of the Death Valley National Park). We will start near Ridgecrest, California. The plan is to camp each night. Death Valley is quite remote with long distances (and drive time) between destinations. We will spend a lot of time driving on the back roads and camping just to explore where they go and to say we did it. We don’t stop as a rule at places that are paved and you can reach by passenger car. There is very limited cell phone coverage. There are opportunities to buy expensive gas. Just don’t rely on a gas station to be there when you need gas – bring extra. We will avoid the paved road as much as possible.
