Death Valley National Park: Eureka Dunes to Last Chance Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"This weekend getaway travels from Eureka Dunes, the highest dunes in California, to Last Chance Mountain, an 8,500-foot peak in Death Valley.
The Last Chance Mountains stretch north to south from the Nevada border into Death Valley National Park, bisecting Eureka Valley to the west and Death Valley to the east. The range’s snowcapped, 7,000-foot mountains contrast remarkably against the sand, salt flats, and rugged canyons that surround them. Get to this secluded range on a challenging weekend backpacking trip through one of California’s emptiest quadrants.
Hike north from S. Eureka Road for a moderate climb into the Last Chance Range. Make sure to turn around for views of the 700-foot Eureka Dunes, the highest dunes in California and some of the tallest in the United States."
