Home / Mojave Preserve and Desert bikepacking trips / 2007: Death Valley National Park bikepacking / Day 1: Baker to Tecopa Hot Springs, California, mostly on Highway 127 57

I ride from Baker to Tecopa Hot Springs on Highway 127, then along the Old Spanish Trail Highway via the town of Tecopa.

The ride begins at about 925 feet elevation in Baker, drops to about 450 feet along Highway 127 near Dumont Dunes, rises to about 2100 feet at Ibex Pass, then drops back down to 1400 feet in the Tecopa Basin.

55.5 paved highway bicycling miles.
