Hero: Saline Valley Alternate Route
small-sr Icon
This is the only trail that runs north to south on the northern side of Death Valley. This is also the easiest way into the Saline Valley. The trail has amazing views of the mountains towering over the salt flats. The area is a very remote desert with no resources. Never travel alone. Dispersed camping is abundant along Saline Valley. For warmer days, check out Boxcar Cabin on the southern side up in the mountains. With cooler weather, plenty of camping is available in the Saline Valley, the center area of this trail. All camping is dispersed and remote. Prepare accordingly.
