Day 1: Start your trip to the 1st campsite

You will meet at Stovepipe Wells on the west side of Death Valley, do an equipment check and then shuttle to the start of the hike in Cottonwood Canyon. The road approach is rough and sandy, so the guides will make sure to have the right vehicle(s) to get there. How far you could get up the road depends upon the vehicles and road condition. .  

From here you will make your way up an old road bed and dry alluvial wash to the spring at the end of the old road and set up camp for the night there under Cottonwood trees and willows.
