    New question here. Riding near Death Valley

    I am thinking of doing a 4-5 day weekend at Easter time around Death Valley. Is there any good riding around there. If so could you suggest any.

    Hey I'll be going there around that time also. Im going out there from Apr 3-8. We're going to be camping at Furnace Creek. Our group (8 of us) planned a couple rides in there. I havent been there myself but from what im reading, most of the trails are 4x4 off-road trails, no single track though. The trails we plan to do are Titus Canyon, Race Track, Hidden Valley, and Cottonwood Canyon. Some of these trails are 20 miles long while others are short. Search around on google too, b/c there are a a lot of other tails I didnt list. Going to be a hot week, thats for sure. Well hope you have fun!
    Keep Pedaling

    Interesting to see if he even survived, considering the thread was from 2004.

    I've been road tripping through there in August just to see how hot it was. It was hot.

    Wildrose Canyon is not too bad, was there in summer about 20 years ago camped and we rode up to Mahogany Flats or at least the kilns ~4K IIRC. Mostly dirt road, ranger tipped us to some old 2-track that was still legal at the time to/from some old mining site that was in really rough shape. But that was back before NP status.
