Inside Death Valley National Park

On the Racetrack Road at Teakettle Jctn. Nice large area for a vehicle or two. Very few pulloffs available though on this road. High clearance is required. You'll need a stout vehicle to make this trip. Heavy duty short trailers might be ok, but RVs would not. This road has the WORST washboarding I have ever experienced. I blew out my shocks on my Toyota Tundra. I saw a new Volvo XC-90 with a broken tie rod end (tire fell off) on this road. Bring plenty of water in case you are stranded. Also, plenty free camping at Homestake Dry Camp at the end of the road. Homestake has pit toilets. The racetrack playa is pretty cool though and worth the trouble. -Andrew
