Lower Telephone Canyon

Death Valley, California, United States
4.9 miles
A short hike up Telephone Canyon in Death Valley National Park. It's high clearance 2WD to the trailhead from Emigrant Canyon road. Telephone Arch is small but interesting, Telephone Spring is long dry but the remains of the mill are interesting. A nice side canyon to the south with some narrows, and a few side washes one has a nice waterfall grotto perhaps 25 feet tall.

Zabriskie Point, Death Valley National Park

Furnace Creek, California, United States
0.3 miles
Taking the easiest route from Las Vegas, it took me 3 hours to drive to Death Valley.  Driving along Hwy 190 before arriving Furnace Creek, we stopped over at Zabriskie Point.  A short walk uphill from the parking lot led us to a lookout over a maze of wildly eroded and vibrantly colored badlands.  Down under the badland we can see some coloured material that looked like a dried creek running under...

Natural Bridge, Death Valley National Park

Badwater, California, United States
0.7 miles
This was an easy 1 mile uphill walk to end of the canyon.  In less than half a mile we saw the natural bridge.  This was considered an easy hike.  You will reach the end of the canyon before returning to the trail head.  Trail ends at dry waterfall.The straight line showed in GPS was just pressing a wrong start button, or my GPS couldn't read the correct signals.  I'll fix the...

Devil's Golf Course, Death Valley National Park
by philipc on Apr 26, 2010
Death Valley, California, United States
0.1 miles
In less than a mile driving north from the Badwater Basin, the Devil’s Golf Course was a complete opposite of the smooth surface of the salt flats.  As a result of wind and rain erosion, the whole area was made into jagged spires from large salt crystals.  This area was so rough that only the devil could play golf on such rough surfaces. Forget about playing golf here, I think even the devil...

Golden Canyon, Death Valley National Park
by philipc on Apr 26, 2010
Furnace Creek, California, United States
2.7 miles
This was a 2-mile trail with return.  It was supposed to be a short hike but the temperature was getting very hot now at 2:40pm when we started this hike.  At 99 degrees F and gradually climbing uphill, all of us could feel the heat.   We hiked on the gravel wash on a gradual but steady uphill grade entering the narrows of the golden badlands.  Each section of the trail is marked with...

Salt Creek, Death Valley National Park

Beatty Junction, California, United States
0.8 miles
Leaving the Furnace Creek area, driving up north of Hwy 190 to Stovepipe Wells, before the hwy turning west to Stovepipe Wells, we stopped over at the Salt Creek.   This was a ½ mile boardwalk along a small stream.  It was just unbelievable to see very shallow running water forming a small creek in the middle of the hot desert.  The most amazing part was to see so many small pupfish swimming very...

Mosaic Canyon, Death Valley National Park

Death Valley, California, United States
3.3 miles
Spent the night at the Stovepipe Wells Lodge, which is one of the two lodging sites within Death Valley.  The facility there is considered good in such a remote desert; with air conditioning and running water.  Accommodation outside of the park is not really an option, as I didn’t see any towns or motels nearby when driving from Las Vegas.  The 3 hrs drive from Vegas was basically along an area of...

Fall Canyon, Death Valley National Park

Death Valley, California, United States
3.2 miles
There is a bit driving from the Mosaic Canyon to the Fall Canyon.  Turned north from 190 to Scotty Castle Rd, and turned into a 3-mile dirt road on Titus Canyon Road.  We didn’t have much time left so we only prepared to have a short hike on the Titus Canyon trail.  At the parking lot, there was a ‘Do Not Enter’ sign on the north and a hiker sign on the...

Titus Canyon Narrows, Death Valley National Park

Death Valley, California, United States
1.7 miles
Didn’t know what to expect in the Titus Canyon Narrows but didn’t feel like leaving the park without taking a look at the Titus Canyon.  Once I returned back to the parking lot from the Fall Canyon, I picked up my pace and entered the month of the Titus Canyon.  The scenery was more or less the same as the Fall Canyon, except the hike was much easier now.  The dirt road...
