Driving up to the trailhead of Death Canyon was very bumpy and much suited for an ATV! I was so thankful we had a truck that could handled this terrain. The beginning of the hike was not strenuous because it was a gradual uphill to the gorgeous view of Phelps lake and we saw marmots! From the top, the trail went down hill that lead us to a gradual uphill back up the canyon where we saw bear scat and waterfall! Overall, the hike was great!
