"Wildrose Canyon" Wildrose Canyon Tip by goingsolo

  Death Valley National Park
by goingsolo

Wildrose Canyon is located off Hwy 178 just past Stovepipe Wells. It is a beautiful drive along a winding and narriow road through the canyon which leads to Mahogany Flat, the Wildrose Charcoal Kilns and Telescope and Wildrose Peaks. Even if you don't drive the road in its entirety (which takes at least an hour each way), take some time to head into Wildrose Canyon and admire the sweeping views.

I visited in late November and didn't see a single other vehicle the entire time. Stopping the car at several points, I was amazed by the stillness and overwhelmed by the beauty of it all. Its a great way to see a portion of Death Valley without the speeding California drivers.

Directions: Off Hwy 178 near Stovepipe Wells
