Saline Range
The Saline Range is located in the north western portion of Death Valley National Park. It is probably the most remote area within the park. It can be accessed via four long and potentially rugged dirt roads known as North Pass, Steal Pass, the Lippencott Road, and South Pass. Bring plenty of extra water and food and be sure to have at least a full tank of gas when exploring this area.
