Home / Mojave Preserve and Desert bikepacking trips / 2007: Death Valley National Park bikepacking / Day 8: Bike ride from Emigrant Campground up to Aguereberry Point and back 23

36.2 bicycling miles, without my camping gear (yay!)

After much morning indecision, I opt for a day ride up Wildrose Road to see some of the area up there, with no specific destination planned.

It's a fairly hot morning here. However, it's usually a bit cooler higher up, so I bring a sweater with me, just in case. And lots of water, of course!

I'm happy that I can leave my camp site at Emigrant Campground at 2000 feet feet intact and not ride with all the weight of my gear up the hills today.

I end up riding to Aguereberry Point at 6400 feet, not expecting anything too special, but the views there turn out to be quite spectacular.
