Enjoy an out-and-back relatively flat course (fewer than 500 feet of climbing and descending). You’ll admire the beauty of the surrounding desert as you follow this paved run from the Oasis Ranch at Furnace Creek along Hwy. 190 through the heart of Death Valley National Park, including a section through scenic Mustard Canyon. The entire course is below sea level with fantastic vistas of the surrounding mountain ranges: the Panamints, the Funerals, the Cottonwoods, the Blacks and the Grapevines. Your immediate surroundings are the exotic flora and fauna found only on the desert floor. This is probably one of the most unique courses you could pick for your next race. The desert is beautiful this time of year with mild temperatures; lows range between 30 and 40 degrees and highs hit the low 70s.
