Death Valley SUV Trails
Death Valley SUV Trails is an unusual guidebook describing 40 backcountry excursions in the greater Death Valley area. These rough road adventures will take you out of Furnace Creek, Stovepipe Wells, Scotty's Castle, Beatty, Shoshone, Big Pine, Panamint Springs, Ballarat, and Trona into remote and little known parts of the Western Great Basin. Roger Mitchell describes in great detail what sights and features you are likely to see along these back roads and jeep trails, including flora, fauna, geology, history, and mining. The 320-page book has GPS coordinates and a topographic map section for each back road and jeep trail. The text is richly supplemented with both historic and modern day photos. Included is a trail rating system so the reader will know how difficult a road is before embarking on it. The routes described range from very easy to very difficult. This book has something of interest for everyone.
