Highlight: Redlands Canyon Road
Tucked back in the mountains of Panamint lies a rarely traveled extreme rock crawling trail. Only known by a few, this secret of Butte Valley is fun but daring place to travel across. The trail itself is hidden on the northwestern side of Butte Valley and is easily missed. While most of the wheeling in Death Valley is mild, Redlands Canyon used to take it to the extreme when heading down the canyon. The trail used to be this long rocky dream with large boulders and 10-foot tall water fall that may or may not have water running down it. For those few that want to try it, be prepared because this secret of the desert is 4 hours from the nearest signs of civilization including cell phone service. So breaking isn't an option when playing out there. But now half of this trail has been closed not allowing you past woods canyon. This trail is may be partially or completely closed to vehicle traffic.

Josh Noesser

Mapping Crew - California

Joshua Noesser grew up in Southern California but has lived in different parts of the country during his young adult life. Josh was first turned to four wheeling when he road with one of his friends dad up Surprise Canyon in the Panamint Valley at age14. After nearly 3 different roll overs later and a half dozen intense waterfalls, Josh was hooked. At 16 he purchased his first Jeep a CJ 7 and by 17 was putting his first locker in it. Currently, Josh is the owner and CEO of Nybble, an IT Solutions Company based in Orange County, California. Nybble isn't your normal IT company where everyone stays in and plays video games. Nybble's average company trip is out on the trails since a good amount of his staff enjoy wheeling too. As Josh likes to say, he offers the only IT Company with the ability to provide services in extreme locations. "If you want a server at the top of The Hammers, we will take care of that for you." Today you can find Josh out on the trail behind the wheel in one of his three different off-road vehicles. See the vehicles below for more information. If you ever run into Josh, please say high, he is a very friendly person and is always happy to have a new person join the group.
