The park does offer guided tours. Call the Barton Warnock Enviornmental Education Center at 432-424-3327 for more information. There are no specific guides for the Solitario; however, the parks website (http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/state-parks/big-bend-ranch) does offer maps and trail guides with information pertaining to hiking all the trails within the park.

Considering that Death Valley is the largest park in the lower 48 states, I would always recommend that you stay longer! There is a lot of park to be seen in such a short period of time, and Death Valley has a lot to offer whether you are auto-touring or hiking. Just remember that there is a vast range of temperatures throughout the park, so be sure to being layers for chilli desert nights!

Our favorites are the Salt Flats, Racetrack Playa, and the Dunes. With three days you may have time to see them all!

For more on things to do in the park, visit our page on Death Valley here.

Early May can be a iffy time for roads. According to the NPS site, "weather permitting" roads from Canyon Village to Fishing Bridge and out the East Entrance should be open to vehicles. The West Entrance should also be open at that time since it's slated to re-open around April 15th. The South Entrance doesn't open until May 13th. Also, Dunraven Pass, the road that links Tower Junction with Canyon Village doesn't open up until later in the season. Great places to hit up in the park include:

  • Old Faithful
  • Norris Geyser Basin
  • Elk Park
  • Mammoth Hot Springs
  • Gardiner, MT (North Entrance Town)
  • Fossil Tree
  • Lamar Valley
  • Cooke City, MT (Just outside the NE Entrance. Some great food!
  • Upper and Lower Falls
  • Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone
  • Hayden Valley
  • Yellowstone Lake
  • and Cody, WY

If you were coming later in the season, I'd suggest Dunraven Pass (in the park) or the Beartooth Highway (just NE of the park, starting past Cooke City). Some excellent views on both of them. 

I hope this helps!
