Ridgecrest is one of the closest full-service communities to the Death Valley Park entrance. The best time to visit Death Valley is typically from January to May when Spring flowers still dot the hills. If you visit in the Summer, come prepared with lots of water. GPS units are not 100% reliable in Death Valley, and getting lost can be very dangerous, so please pick up a map and stay on the designated roads.
