The name alone is going to make this an attractive trip for bikers and drivers of tough looking cars, preferably circa 1970. Surrounded by formations in rock and sand dunes, the tallest dunes in the US, this route passes close enough to narrow canyons with dangerous names to feel like you're living on the edge. Though the Death Valley National Park and finishing with a spin around the Death Valley Race Track, this is the kind of trip that will have you sleeping sound in your bed or sleeping bag each night.

The best time to complete a trip though the Death Valley is winter or spring. Spend just a day in the park ex Las Vegas and make it up to Red Rock Canyon and Hole in the Wall, of Butch Cassidy fame, or stay for longer and explore more of the 3.3 million acres of ghost towns, rock formations and dramatic empty vistas.
