Hottest, Driest, Lowest: A superlative desert of streaming sand dunes, snow-capped mountains, multicolored rock layers, water-fluted canyons and 3 million acres of wilderness. Full of nature and history, there are endless activities in the park. About the size of the state of Connecticut, one can spend weeks exploring Death Valley and only scratch the surface of what there is to see and do.

Great hike. Very moderate. Doable in a couple hours. Great views at the end. The rocks are very beautiful.

This was our last hike. It actually rained a couple of drops. Very easy walk between towering cliffs that we couldn't see the tops of because of the clouds. This was easily the most crowded hike we did. There is room for everyone so enjoy the walk.

You can tell who's driving the rentals because they're flying down the road. It took awhile in my Tacoma and if you try this in a car(and we saw cars) be careful. But it's worth the trip.

This is a great hike for winter. I live in Wyoming, so all we have is winter camping. Not my style. Not a difficult hike and navigating was not an issue. Just watch for the entrance to Dead Horse Canyon and you'll be fine. Since we weren't certain of the water situation we hauled our water. No water filter. Maybe not a good idea if it's hot, but for us it was no problem. We did it from the Cottonwood side, and I think this is the better choice.

We hiked the loop up Willow Creek Canyon, over the ridge & back down Sidewinder Canyon. The narrows in the side canyons of Sidewinder were very cool. Very tight & dark in some spots. Could have spent several more hours out there exploring more slots.

My Jeep Compass got shock oil leaked at the end of the road but managed to get back with careful driving. I've seen Mustang on the road as well. The south end of the lakebed has more interesting rocks. Amazing landscape.
