Hi all,

A friend and I will be in the valley next week and we're looking for a nice 2-4 day backpacking area. As it looks now we're going to do the the Cottonwood Creek to Marble Canyon loop. (Does any one know if there is much vehicle traffic on that route, past the trailhead?. Interesting terrain?) We're looking for some nice canyon/mountain areas anywhere in Death Valley that where one can do some backpacking?hiking without much vehicle traffic. We're in a 2wd Ford Ranger so that shuts us out of many areas. Any advice would be hugely appreciated.
