We spent two nights in PSR and one night in Beatty. PSR is a good place to stage from.
There are trees in pockets. Swansea Road going up to the Salt Trams has some trees you ride through. There are also some trees going up Pleasant Canyon near the top. North Pass has some trees and so does Hunter Mtn. There are trees on the north slope going north from Cerro Gordo.
The trees are at a variety of altitudes and there are not many in Death Valley. No trees in Darwin other than a few people have planted.
Yes you have to plan your gas very carefully. With my new 5.3 gallon fuel tank, I can ride just about any loop I want in DV. I love it.
