    high-clearance first 3 miles, 4x4 required beyond

    Distance:
    10 miles to Inyo Mine

    Start:
    2 miles east of Furnace Creek Inn on Hwy 190

    Yes, after first 2 miles

    Description:
    The road tends to have deep gravel and is quite rocky 3 miles from the highway. The Needle’s Eye, a natural arch, is located within the canyon narrows. A side road to the left climbs over a small saddle and eventually leads to Amargosa Valley, but is very rough, requiring a short wheelbase 4x4 and an experienced driver. The main road continues to the Inyo Mine with its old structures and remnants of mining equipment.
