Death Valley is the site of one of Timberline Adventures’ signature Base Camp Cycling Tours. These trips focus on thoroughly exploring choice locations with superb and plentiful riding routes, as well as excellent lodging and amenities. Our base camp for this tour will be the Furnace Creek Ranch and Resort, located in the heart of the National Park. Daily mileage on the tour varies between 40-70 miles on smooth roads with sparse traffic and phenomenal views.
The colorful manganese- and iron-rich hillsides and lizards zipping through the brush alongside the road provide a nice distraction during our climbs. The stellar views reward riders beyond expectation. On a clear February day it’s possible to spot the highest and lowest points in the park simultaneously (snow-dusted Telescope Peak at 11,049 feet and Badwater at 282 feet below sea level). In terms of spectacular scenery, Death Valley does not disappoint.
