“Worth the walk!”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

Brilliant canyon that shows the true magnificence of the entire area. It is a long walk but reasonably level and not too hard, but it can be a challenge with the heat. Take plenty of water!!!

“Beautiful breathtaking views!”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

When visiting Death Valley, be sure to include Golden Canyon as a must-do hike in the park. The pastel colors within the canyon are just amazing. The hike up to Zabriskie Point is well worth your effort. You can return to your car via the Gower's Gulch loop trail.

“Wish I could have spent more time”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

I had older people with me and couldn't do much of a hike. But, this is only a 2 mile loop trail and beautiful! I did hike a tiny bit. If you can't hike, it's probably not going to mean much.

“Nice canyon, hot at end of day”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

Canyon was nice hike, but I would recommend AM instead of PM. I did this in late afternoon, but the canyon radiates heat, so was a bit too hot.

“Scenic”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

Nice drive through a scenic and colorful canyons, with pull offs for hiking or photos. Crude trail will keep your speed below 25 mph.
