Explore Western Death Valley National Park with the first comprehensive guidebook to this amazing California region.

Lost between the rugged High Sierras and the glamor of Las Vegas, bypassed by most visitors on their way somewhere else, Death Valley is a sumptuous alignment of low desert valleys trapped between mountains that reach over 11,000 feet. This little-known and largely unexplored paradise is waiting to be discovered. Western Death Valley is a hiker's mecca filled with salt flats and sand dunes, old mines and ghost towns, awesome canyons, breathtaking summits, delightful springs, unexpected streams, and more miles of unspoiled desert than one can explore in a lifetime.

Hiking Western Death Valley National Park by Michel Digonnet is the first comprehensive guidebook that's completely dedicated to this fascinating region. Illustrated with hand-drawn topographic maps, ripe with information about the area's rich human and mining history, geology, and botany, this updated second edition takes hikers and four-wheelers to more than 200 destinations, covering a wide range of interests and skill levels.

Book Features:

  • More than 80 trips divided into seven sections
  • Fascinating information about history, geology, and weather
  • Introduction to the desert's flora and fauna
  • Expert tips on hiking time, hazards, ethics, and regulations
