Overview

The Funeral Range Trail joins a long list of Death Valley areas with morbid names: Coffin Peak, Hell's Gate, Starvation Canyon and Dead Man Pass. The trail runs through the Funeral Mountains along Upper Echo Canyon and offers one of the few difficult trail runs within the national park. Tight canyon walls and rock ledges up to 3' in height will test a vehicle's articulation and a driver's skill level. In addition, the trail lies along the eastern edge of the park and starts and stops in two different states: California and Nevada.
