Ascent of Coffin Peak in Death Valley National Park from the Dante's View road. This is a cross country walk that for the first portion is not cairned - once you gain the ridgeline the path is fairly obvious.

Fun hike. Great view from the top just remember to start early before the extreme heat. Not much of a trail to follow the first 3/4s but being desert it's easy to figure out where to go. You'll have the trail to yourself as tourists will stick to the main lookouts.
