Death Valley National Park

Off road / 4WD adventures

I visited Death Valley a few years ago, and would like to go back. I am planning to be prepared with a 4WD vehicle this time. What places would you recommend going with a 4WD? I am thinking the Racetrack, and the larger sand dunes. Where else? I appreciate any tips regarding these places or others.

VT rocks!

Sorry, I can't answer your question specifically because I don't know. However, I'd sugguest you contact the Rangers from the Park and ask them.

National and State Parks are protected areas and the I'm sure that any "off-road" activities in Death Valley would be regulated and limited. The fines for ignoring these boundries are pretty high.

If you go to the nps website ( and look at DV there is a map of unpaved roads in the park and a short description of each. You can't drive on the sand dunes but can walk on them as much as you like.
