We only hiked into this canyon about 15 minutes, and saw such amazing rock formations. My family loved it. It was too hot that day to hike all the way, but we got some terrific pictures!

We did the hike to the Canyon and immediately came upon the polished rocks. They were gorgeous. The hike is not to long and the latter part of the hike is where the best parts are.

We didn't do the whole canyon, just the begining. Thought that was interesting enough and then back to the car. After a while the canyons start looking the same.

This was our first hike in the valley and a great easy hike with our baby. We went all the way up until the bolder. We think we could have done it with her, but didn't want to chance it. You don't even need to...More

This quickly became a “top ten” hike for us. As others have said, the 2.5 mile rough road trip to the trailhead is best done in a larger vehicle. There are facilities right before you turn off the main road at Stovepipe Wells. The grade...More

Death Valley NP draws you back to it. If you haven’t been, then go. The last time we visited was three years ago, and some things had changed. Both Dante’s View and Scotty’s Castle were closed for repairs and maintenance, the walking paths to Zabriskie...More

First, let me just start off by saying that these unpaved gravel roads need to be paved. The short 2.5 mile drive on the unpaved road to the trailhead parking lot seemed like it lasted for 2 hours. I just had my cv axle replaced...More

This canyon is located off a short dirt road just west of Stovepipe Wells. Its slick rock walls are very different than those of walls in other popular canyons and the hike is suitable for almost anyone. It's an out and back hike with varied...More

Once you get through the 2 mile or so washboard road you are ready for something surprising. You get it as you walk thorugh the canyon and see the incredible geological formations with rocks "cemented" into canyon walls--very cool.
