  1. Default Racetrack Playa, Death Valley


    I visited the Racetrack Playa three years ago with my friends. Before we desided to drive the bumpy road we asked an officer would it be possible to drive there with our SUV. He laughed and said no. We would have a flat tyre before we would have even started the journey from the Ubehebe crater.

    Well, we were stubborn enough to go anyway. We had plenty of water and some food. The road was in extremely poor condition since there had been some washouts from the mountains. But we made it there.

    And the place was simple amazing! We searched from the sliding rocks and actually found some. One was the size of a human and it had a long track behind it. We stayed until the sunset and then the strong winds came.

    What an experience! Has anybody else visited the Racetrack?

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    The offices and founders of RTA are located in Las Vegas and Death valley is their 'back yard'. Although I haven't visited the Race track YET, it is certainly on my 'to do' list. For anyone interested, you can see what it's all about in this report by Mark Sedenquist.
