A lot is packed into this 20 mile drive cutting through the Grapevine Mountains. Setting aside the unusual rock formations and plants you’re going to see, this place is absolutely brilliant with hiking opportunities. This make is one of the most popular destinations in Death Valley. It’s one way though – from Nevada Highway 374 (Daylight Pass Road, 2 miles east of the park boundary) to the western end of the canyon.
So what to see? From White Pass, enter the Titanothere Canyon where colorful rock deposits contain fossil beds upto 35-million years old; you can also park where the road crosses the second fork of the drainage and hike 4.5 miles down to the Lostman Spring. Other sites you might want to check out are Leadfield, the Red Pass (from where you can also got for the Thimble Peak Hike). If you want to see Big Horn Sheep, visit the Klare Spring to see them who come drinking here; as a bonus you’ll get to see the petroglyphs left by the Native Americans who once came to hunt here. DO NOT DEFACE THEM!
