    Description:
    From the Dante's View Road to Hwy 178, this road follows the length of this mid-elevation valley. Good for spring wildflowers if winter rains fall. Once bustling during mining booms, little remains of the ghost towns of Furnace and Greenwater accessible via side roads. A rough, dead-end road to Gold Valley (4x4 required) leads off to the west 17 miles from the north end.
