DEATH VALLEY BACKPACKING

Death Valley Backpacking Trips

Death Valley National Park is one of the largest wilderness areas in the United States, and buried within that vast expanse are several amazing and surprising backpacking routes. Two of our Death Valley backpacking trips are centered around Telescope Peak, which towers more than 11,000 feet over the low point in Death Valley, Bad Water Basin (282 feet below sea level.) This vertical relief is one of the greatest in th lower 48. Both of these trips summit Telescope Peak.

We also offer a stunning backpacking trip that connects two amazing canyons - Cottonwood and Marble - through a maze of winding ravines, side canyons and oases. This trip is popular among Wildland guests for its unlikely water sources, wild horse herds, stunning views and unique narrows and canyons. We invite you to read more below about backpacking in Death Valley National Park with Wildland Trekking!
