The California Four Wheel Drive Association is happy to announce our inaugural Death Valley Experience event March 10-14, 2021.
This event is a fund raiser for the association. Each day will feature a choice of runs to some famous, some infamous and some secretive points of interest within Death Valley National Park. The runs will depart from Furnace Creek and from Stovepipe Wells. Registration includes your choice of one run, a special inaugural edition Death Valley Experience shirt, and a delicious box lunch. You can choose additional runs for an additional charge. We are still working out the run details and will have online registration open soon so you can register and choose your trail run(s). Our permit places a limit to the number of vehicles allowed on each run. We expect that the runs will fill up fast, so be sure to register now! Early bird pricing runs through February 26.

In search of the Forty-Niners – This is a guided 4-wheel drive tour of the 1849 wagon route used by thousands of emigrants from Gerlach, Nevada to Surprise Valley, California. Superb desert and mountain scenery with many historical points of interest, led by experienced guides. All quality meals and basic camping facilities are provided. Limited to 25 vehicles.
This is a 4WD trip for high clearance 4WD vehicles only. The route used will follow the same trail heavily used during the Gold Rush (1849-1852) with exception of a few areas where the original trail still remains in relatively pristine condition and needs to be preserved. The condition of the road ranges from maintained county roads to un-maintained 4WD trails.
The Emigrants wrote in their diaries such a good description of this trip that we can identify all of the key points of interest in the history of the route. It is not a difficult trip but there are places where 4WD will be required or where trail committee instructions must be followed.
The price is $275* for adults and $150* for children age 7 to 14. Children under 7 are free. Bring your own tent, chairs, sleeping bags, snacks, refreshments and plenty of drinking water. A travel guide with a map will be provided for each vehicle so that you may keep track of your progress and learn what the emigrants wrote down about their harrowing experiences.
