Hero: Lippincott Pass
small-sr Icon
Lippincott Pass is an iconic trail in the heart of Death Valley that takes you from Saline Valley to the even more iconic destination of Racetrack Playa. The trail is incessantly rocky and jarring. Combine that with the steep shelf road, and you are sure to give your passenger an uneasy stomach. The beginning of the road passes through one deep wash that requires careful line choice and low range. Then, multiple partial washouts bring you even closer to the edge coming through the pass. Between the narrow road and the rocks, it’s best to be accompanied by a functioning 4WD system and an experienced driver. There are no campsites along Lippincott Pass.
