DV Rec Area is huge. An all day ride to get thru. There is probably 2-300 mi of pavement inside DV
I've been there 4 times and still haven't done any significant off roading.
Go see "the Racetrack" in the evening.
Spend at least a half day at Scottys Castle.
Ride the length of the park as well as the width.
