Welcome to Steve Hall's Death Valley Adventures! 

Steve, Daria, and Stefan (pictured at Darwin Falls) welcome you to our site.  Death Valley National Park is one of the most spectacular areas of desert wilderness in the world with vast salt flats, scenic canyons, historic mining sites, forested mountain peaks, impressive natural bridges, huge sand dunes, abundant wildlife, and more.  We try our best with this site to share some of the options for visiting, hiking, and exploring Death Valley National Park.

Below, there is a menu containing 12 specific sections of the site which you may find interesting to check out.  Most first-time visitors start out with the Introduction page, DV Hiking Recommendations page, and DV Hiking Reports page (containing 200+ hikes) in order to gain an overview of what can be found in Death Valley.


Terms and Conditions (Disclaimer)  Death Valley National Park can be a very dangerous place to hike and while we do our best to promote hiker safety and highlight some of the challenges and obstacles for specific hiking routes, we cannot cover everything.  Remember that your safety is your responsibility and anyone using this site must agree to not hold us responsible for any injuries (or deaths) that occur while following routes we share.  Before making use of the site, you are required to read and agree to our full Terms and Conditions.
