Home / Mojave Preserve and Desert bikepacking trips / 2007: Death Valley National Park bikepacking / Day 7: Ride from Monarch Canyon to Emigrant Campground, crossing Death Valley along the way 19

I return to pavement and civilization today.

After a brief uphill on the gravel road out of Monarch Canyon to around 3700 feet, it's downhill on paved Daylight Pass Road back into Death Valley, passing Hell's Gate along the way.

I ride across the hot valley on Highway 190 to Stovepipe Wells at 100 feet below sea level, and continue on up to the Emigrant Campground at 2000 feet.

30 bicycling miles down and up.
