Death Valley Buttes Professional Review and Guide

"This is a short but challenging hike/scramble to the summits of two of the three prominent Death Valley Buttes at the southern foot of the Grapevine Mountains. The vistas are among the most dramatic in the Park.

This is an adventuresome hike where looks can truly be deceiving. As you drive past the south side of the buttes, their ascent appears quick, easy, and straightforward. Not so. The trek to the summit of Red Top is a serious one and should only be attempted by those experienced in off-trail route-finding on steep, rough terrain."
