Awesome slot canyon hike. Scramble north up the hill of where the route on this page ends to get an incredible view of the valley below (you'll see a use trail from the canyon floor). It's totally worth the effort, but be careful coming down as the scree is loose.

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.

we got lost--- then sun went down. We learned that many creatures live in death valley and they emerge at night! Was a little frightening- especially the coyote. But interesting to come across creatures you never imagined were present from daytime view.
