    Route Description for Coffin Peak Trail

    Coffin Peak Trail is not along designated Death Valley National Park trails, making navigation more difficult. We recommend bringing some sort of mapping aid with you to assist in your wayfinding throughout the route. As the desert environment of Death Valley National Park can become intensely hot midday, it is suggested that you start the hike earlier in the morning.

    Having parked your car at the lot, make your way east along steadily inclining terrain. With Coffin Peak visible in the foreground, the route will reach a short plateau before veering sharply to the south. After making its way up a saddle on the west side of the mountain, the trail will head east along a ridgeline, where it will then deliver you to Coffin Peak. Once at the top, enjoy the incredible views that can be had before backtracking your steps towards the parking lot, and your waiting vehicle.

    Getting to the Coffin Peak Trail Trailhead
