Geology:
Death Valley Region Geology Guide

The Far South (FS)

The three sites in this area lie in the extreme southeast corner of Death Valley National Park immediately west of California Highway 127 which provides the best access from Baker and I-15 or from Furnace Creek or southern Nevada. A visit to all three should be avoided in the heat of mid-summer because they are 6 to 10 miles off the pavement. Except following infrequent rains (usually in winter) which may make the roads impassable for several weeks, access to sites 1 and 2 can be accomplished in most any vehicle. Site 3 requires high clearance if the road has been maintained by a four-wheel group on a recent visit but usually four-wheel drive is required because of a severe washout about a mile and half east of the site.
