Smooth marble canyon and fun dry falls to climb. The children loved exploring here.

nice easy hike, not too crowded and 87 degrees this morning.

A great canyon hike with lots of different options for every hiking skill level. Highly recommended climbing some of the spur trails to get great views of the valley.

Deep gravel most of the way which makes it difficult so a decent workout. The dry fall at the end was rather anticlimactic. May be better in a different season. Went in the evening and saw a lot of little bats hunting for bugs.

My favorite hike in Death Valley. Cool marble canyon, quiet, easy hike. Just as you come out of the first tight canyon, go to the left and follow a footpath to the top of a rock hill and get some great photos of the canyon from above.

The first part was definitely the tighest canyon, but just going the first .5 to .75 Mike's definitely cuts out a lot of cool views. after the tight canyons from start it grows into a huge walled canyon with so much more to see. I was planning on just going the first .5 miles based off recommendations but had to keep going.

A very special place. I strongly recommend you to come here if you go to Death Valley. In fact, just hiking the first narrow part is enough to see all the features of the trail.

Beautiful canyon. We only hiked about 3/4 miles in to check it out!!

In my opinion, the trail is underwhelming. The coolest part is within the first .5 miles. It’s a bit of a drive to get down the gravel road to the trailhead. I recommend spending more time at the sand dunes instead.

Keep going the the falls are worth

I hiked from Shorty’s Well, just east of West of westside road, up the Jeep trail to the west for five miles. It was nice in early February.

If you’re coming to the park from Panamint Springs direction it’s a definite stop to make. There’s a lot of interesting textures in the canyon and you don’t have to go too far to see them. Be prepared to climb and jump.

We really enjoyed this hike for its beautiful rock formations and challenging scrambles over the rocks and through the narrows. There is a section at about 1.4 miles in where you need to climb up the incline in front and to the right of you rather than following the canyon. Following the canyon takes you to a very steep 15-20 (or so) foot climb up vertical rocks. Not being rock climbers we were lucky to have been directed by the hikers in front of us to head up the hill rather than follow the canyon. There are no signs. You'll see the trail again once you start up the hill and it'll drop you back into the canyon above the drop-off. The trail ends (for most people) at the tall rock wall at about 1.8 miles in. Super fun out-and-back hike.

NOT EASY
had to take off hiking boots to climb the rock wall to continue on the last 0.5-7 miles.
beautiful view, marble rocks, fun scrambling

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!

Its a fun tail only one area that 4wd maybe needed. Once you get there spend some time in the ghost town. Be sure to go to the rim of the canyon great view.

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

We had a cloudy day, so sun and heat were not issues for us. As most of the hike is wide open on gravel or sand, we were grateful for the lack of sun. However, once in the narrow canyon where the stream was, it would have been nice to have some sun. The waterfalls make the trek well worth it.

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!

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.

who ever said this is an easy trail did not finish this hike. at some point there's a block makes you think it's the end but it's actually not. a pretty cool hike though.

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.

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

This was a fun 4x4 drive to take my Jeep on. The road is not easy to spot from the main paved road, hence it is not well traveled and if you do encounter anyone else along the way, they are likely doing the same thing you are. Plenty of solitude with cool rock formations to look at along the way. The road is a bit rocky in a few spots but not anything extreme or crazy. Exploring the Inyo Mine ghost town way out there was pretty cool too. Fun drive :)
