Walk / Hike / Play, Death Valley National Park: 11 reviews and 10 photos
Favorite thing: The Golden Canyon trail is a one mile (one way) easy walk through this colorful sun drenched canyon. Once you get to the end of the marked trail, its another half mile round trip to see Red Cathedral. For an even better hike, take the fork in the trail and do the Gower Gulch loop. From this route, a separate trail leads over to Zabriskie Point, although its cuirrently closed due to damage resulting from the floods.
Fondest memory: Watching the sun bounce off rock fragments from the top of the Gower Gulch trail. It was a beautiful sight, one of the best I've seen on a trail, probably because I expected so little out of this hike.
