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.

This is a hidden gem in the park. Very nice trail, moderate difficulty.
The visitor center actually has map for this trail, and you can actually download from NPS website.
2.5 hours is enough for out and back.

The trail it self, beautiful. The view at the end on the ridge is breathtaking. You can see the winding canyon you just climbed in colors, and you have view towards artist's drive, further down is the death valley salt flats.

Very beautiful trail, and you will find fewer people the further you hike into the canyon. The scenery is otherworldly and the center of the canyon away from the trailheads is peaceful. There are trail markers throughout, so navigating the canyons is pretty straightforward.

Beautiful hike. Went in November and the temperature was perfect. Does involve crossing small creeks and climbing up wet/smooth rocks so have some traction footwear.

fab views!!

quick hike uphill and into the canyon gets you to natural bridge. You can climb up to the top of the arch, but be careful, the footing is sketchy

So weird! Look up high on the mountain above you there is a sign that says sea level. Looks like you are walking on snow, but it's white salt!

We went by the light of the full moon. Gorgeous but I would have liked to see it in the daytime as well. Really nice slot canyon in the beginning.

Gorgeous! Dunes are soft at the top and hard at the bottom. Hoof it to the far and tallest dunes, the views are worth it.

Awesome experience

Nice informative walk

The ending is a cute waterfall where you hang from a tree. Does get pretty dirty though. Amazing to see water stream like that in the middle of the desert
