This vigorous hike on the eastern slopes of the Panamint Range includes a diverse canyon with springs,waterfalls, and a permanent stream, along with some of the most spectacular vistas in Death Valley. Other attractions include old mining artifacts and a chance to see wildlife. Begin by hiking up the brushy bottom of the South Fork of Hanaupah Canyon. Hug the left side of the canyon wall to pick up a use trail next to the stream.The springs that feed Hanaupah Canyon discharge an amazing 250-plus gallons per minute, nurturing a diverse riparian corridor that attracts a wide array of wildlife. The old mines and cabin of “Shorty” Borden are on the hillsides above the springs. The trail cuts through an eroded alluvial fan and reaches permanent water at 0.6 mile, as evidenced by willow thickets.This is also the junction of an old mining road that leads to the upper mine. From here it’s about 0.3 mile up the brushy bottom to a waterfall. Many of the granite boulders along the streambed are embedded with feldspar crystals, the same Little Chief granite found on Telescope Peak.
