The name of the park says it all, with unprepared tourists dying each year in the national park. It was given its forbidding name when a group of pioneers got lost in the valley in the Winter of 1849-1850. Death Valley is the largest national park outside of Alaska and has more miles of roads than any other national park. There are more than 300 miles of paved roads, 300 miles of improved dirt roads and several hundred miles of unmaintained 4WD tracks which provide ample opportunities for 4WDing exploration.
The park is located primarily in the Southern California Desert, with a small portion extending into Nevada. In order to conquer Death Valley in your 4WD you will need plenty of
determination, a well-planned out route and common sense. There are a number of areas to explore by 4WD in Death Valley including; the Echo Pass, South Park Canyon and the Dedeckera Canyon, all making for a challenging and fun 4WD experience.
