Hunter Mountain Road, also known as Hidden Valley Road, begins at Teakettle Junction, just north of Racetrack Playa, then passes through Lost Burro Gap and into Hidden Valley. While not the largest empty expanse you’ll come across in Death Valley National Park, Hidden Valley reminds you just how isolated you are. Then, in a dramatic change of scenery, Hunter Mountain Road takes you from the floor of Hidden Valley Dry Lake at 4,626 feet all the way past 7,100 feet of elevation. The only real challenges posed by this road are the sandy lake bed. In the colder months, expect snow and ice on the trail once you reach higher elevations. There are no designated campsites along the trail, but plenty of places along the route could accommodate a few vehicles for the night.
