About Backcountry Roads

  • A vehicle with high-clearance will be necessary for all of the roads described, but four wheel-drive may also be required on some of the rougher roads. Inquire at the Furnace Creek Visitor Center or other ranger stations for additional information and current road conditions.

  • Please stay on established roads and respect wilderness closures.

  • Do not remove or disturb any cultural or natural features in the park.

  • Be sure to carry plenty of water; never rely on backcountry water sources.

  • Backcountry camping is restricted to certain areas, please check in at the visitor center before planning an overnight trip and fill out a free Backcountry Camping Permit.
