Well worth doing. Upper Darwin Falls, in particular, are incredibly scenic. However, it requires some scrambling to get past the lower falls, below which you can't even catch a glimpse of what's above...
A very different type of activity to do while in Death Valley. We never expected to see so much water while in the desert. A very fun hike up the creek. I especially liked climbing up and over things and going through the water. The falls and swimming hole are a beautiful sight at the end of the trail. If only the water had been warmer! If you have 4x4, make sure to continue up the road over the mts. and into Darwin Wash...there are a few cool remains of what used to be a mining town.
Great for a quick hike. A lot of geologic features as well. Cool, shady areas for most of hike except for the beginning potion along (at the time) a dry stream bed. Falls themselves are very impressive, especially in the type of environment they lie in.
