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...

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...

Zabriskie Point, Death Valley National Park
by philipc on Apr 26, 2010
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...

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.

Lower Bighorn Gorge

Death Valley, California, United States
12.3 miles
From Scottys Castle Road, it's 4.5 miles to the mouth of the gorge. I went about two miles into the wash, and it wasn't getting any more interesting so I turned around. The gorge is supposed to be much nicer at the top end, accessible by 35 miles of gravel road (one way).

North of Grapevine Springs
by RayFink on Apr 16, 2010
Death Valley, Nevada, United States
4.5 miles
Another desert wash hike... This was the result of some random exploring at the north end of the park on the Big Pine Road, just a little bit north of the Grapevine Springs area. I haven't been able to find the name of this canyon on any of the maps I have. It is north of Little Grapevine Canyon. After exploring one wash that shortly became too bouldered for easy travel, I...

Slit Canyon - Death Valley National Park

Schwaub (historical), California, United States
3.3 miles
We explored Slit Canyon just Northwest from Hole in the Wall in Death Valley National Park. This canyon was a rare find with fun twists,  turns,  and lots a dry falls to climb! We hiked about 3 miles into this impressive canyon for a memorable day.
