Hiking Western Death Valley National Park


Panamint, Saline and Eureka Valleys

A hiking and four-wheeling paradise

Lost between the rugged High Sierras and sunbaked Death Valley, bypassed by most visitors on their way somewhere else, this sumptuous alignment of low desert valleys trapped between mountains reaching over 11,000 feet is a little-known paradise waiting to be discovered. This is Death Valley one hundred years ago, a hiker's mecca filled with salt flats and sand dunes, old mines and ghost towns, awesome canyons, breathtaking summits, delightful springs and unexpected streams, and more miles of unspoiled desert than one can explore in a lifetime.

This is the first comprehensive guidebook dedicated to this fascinating region. Illustrated with hand-drawn topographic maps, filled with information about the area's rich human and mining history, geology, and botany, it will take hikers and four-wheelers to more than 200 destinations covering a wide range of interests and difficulties.
