Death Valley is the largest national park in the continental United States and has more miles of roads than any other national park. Though 95% of the park’s 3.4 million acres are protected in roadless wilderness areas, more than 1,000 miles of paved and dirt roads provide ample opportunities for recreation and exploration.
