Contact: Patrick Taylor, 760-786-3279Death Valley National Park and Death Valley Natural History Association are offering a limited number of opportunities to visit Scotty’s Castle to see the flood damage and learn about repairs. Scotty’s Castle has been closed since a massive flood on October 18, 2015 caused extensive damage to utilities, buildings, and Bonnie Clare Road.
The two hour ranger-led walking tours will provide an opportunity to enter the closed area.
Death Valley National Park is the homeland of the Timbisha Shoshone and preserves natural and cultural resources, exceptional wilderness, scenery, and learning experiences within the nation’s largest conserved desert landscape and some of the most extreme climate and topographic conditions on the planet. About two-thirds of the park was originally designated as Death Valley National Monument in 1933. Today the park is enjoyed by about 1,300,000 people per year. The park is 3,400,000 acres – nearly as large as the state of Connecticut. Learn more at www.nps.gov/deva.
