DEATH VALLEY 31 March - 5 April
Thought I would put this out there early. Planning a trip to DV for the above dates. Still in the early stages of planning. Will be getting a campsite somewhere in DV for 3 days/4 nights. Planning on 3 full days of riding. The loop I've been wanting to do should be full on. The other 2 days will be easier, suitably for larger adventure bikes (VStrom, GS etc..). I will be 2up with my gf for both of those days (still, she likes to ride, we did Steele Pass in 09).
Any advice/feedback is appreciated (best place to camp in DV).
The big day will start somewhere in DV. Head to the northern part of the park via pavement (395). Death Valley Road to Eureka Dunes (deep sand here). Eureka Dunes over Steele Pass into Saline Valley. Saline Valley to The Racetrack via Lippincott Pass. The Racetrack to Teakettle Junction to Ubehebe Crater - back to the campsite via pavement. Might avoid 395 and access Eureka Dunes via Crankshaft Crossing / Hanging Canyon (sweet paved goat trail in Hanging Canyon).
Couple people are going. Hopefully get some other KLR's out there.
