How is NV 374 from Beatty to Furnace Creek in Death Valley. Never been on that road before. 40' FW. Thank you to my most trusted road info folks. Betsy

Not too bad of a two lane road. I'd certainly take our 39' Bus towing our Grand Cherokee along that road. Mostly straight from Beatty to Daylight Pass with a 1300' ft climb over about 13 miles. Then a 4800' decent over about 27 miles, with the majority in the first 15-20 miles down from the pass. Just use your gears going down to avoid riding the brakes. It'll be hot if going soon!

Nov. is usually a good time to visit DV. Heading to the 49ers Encampment Nov. 4-10 by any chance? The only other reasonable route is 95->373->190. That route is mostly flat or gentle downhill, but twice as long.

Easier drive (95>373>190) and being shorter with less grades.

A little late, but no Encampment. Just looking for a different route home from Bishop.
