"Gower Gulch Loop Trail" Walk / Hike / Play Tip by goingsolo
Walk / Hike / Play, Death Valley National Park: 11 reviews and 10 photos
Favorite thing: The name doesn't make this trail sound very appealing, nor does the description at the trailhead which says that this is a walk through a drainage ditch. But Gower Gulch Trail was the sleeper hit of this Death Valley visit.
The three mile loop trail has some spectacular views. There's a killer uphill on a rock formation and a traverse along a very narrow trail with steep exposure to the side. But the view defies description. A wave of browns and rusts swept across dozens of triangular shaped rocks spread out below. An unbelievable sight, especially in the late afternoon sunlight.
