Artist’s Dips Professional Review and Guide

"Close to Furnace Creek and right off the busy Artist’s Drive, this 4.5-mile outing takes you swiftly into dramatic solitude, with the vivid strata of colorful volcanic formations rising above the canyons. Review your crayon vocabulary before this hike so you can describe the colors!

At 2 miles from the dip, you can finally see the Death Valley floor far below. The canyon has descended 600 feet since the hike began at Dip 1. Here you take a sharp right turn to head back uphill in the adjacent canyon. Here too a plethora of flowers blooms in the spring with enough moisture."
