Death Valley Region Geology Guide

Central Death Valley (CD)

Sites CD1-5 are generally located between Furnace Creek and Stovepipe Wells and all are easily accessible by most any vehicle and with one exception, very easy to locate. Sites CD1, 3 and 5 are immediately adjacent to paved roads. Site CD2 is at the end of a short, flat well-graded gravel road. Site CD4 is at the end of a slightly rougher and steeper gravel road that is accessible to most vehicles with a modicum of clearance. The sites emphasize mining history, evidence of climate change since the Pleistocene and Neogene extensional tectonics.
