Travel the less-traveled


At Twenty-mule Team Canyon, visitors can explore a roller-coaster drive, hidden just off the main highway. Here, a 2.5 mile (4 km) dirt road winds between, around, and over yellow hills.

Located just east of Zabriskie Point, this one-way drive offers spectacular scenery, and a taste of the ruggedness of Death Valley. Although this road is usually passable by most vehicles, check current conditions at the Furnace Creek Visitor Center before heading out.
