First visit to Death Valley National Park and was fortunate enough to hike this on a low 70 degree day with my DH! Would consider this more of a moderate hike, but if you've ever hiked a mountain, you are well prepared. What a spectacular glimpse of Death Valley - a taste of the desert and all it has to offer! Honestly, you can stop at the "boulder jam" and still finish with an all around good experience of what the canyon has to offer and still get in some exercise! ;-) Rating this a four - although, I would only do this if the weather was cool like today...and unfortunately, I do not know when I will be back to hike this again as it is not in my "neighborhood". Was hoping to see an iguana...but that's alright - did spot two cacti on our route. All in all, a highly recommended hike for those wanting a quite unique experience of desert and canyon features!

Pretty moderate skill levels needed to climb the super slick rocks. Apart from that a good hike.

Came here in the beginning of January. Lots of people the first mile or so in. Dead ends to a small dry waterfall. Super cool smooth rocks to climb over, subtle gradual incline. Good for most levels and also for those who like to get adventurous clamoring over rocks!
