You drive up a steep, unpaved road to Mahogany Flat campground. (Or, if the road is closed due to snow, try to score a camp spot at Thorndike camp and walk the 1.1 miles to the trailhead) Love this trail but could not make to the top because of the deep snow. We had snowshoes but since the trail was completely covered, the only way to the top was straight up the ridge. The snowshoes were like skis and it just wasn't going to happen. If you like solitude and want an experience most people don't expect to get while visiting Death Valley, this is for you! We can't wait to go back when there is less snow!
