This steep, rugged canyon opens to grand vistas of the floor of Death Valley. The canyon out-and-back hike has good highway access and doesn’t require a four-wheel-drive vehicle. Narrow tunnels and sheer rock slots require moderate scrambling to dramatic views of Death Valley. Special attractions include several slot side canyons with natural bridges and pour-offs inviting further exploration. The canyon also lies within bighorn sheep habitat.
