Darwin Falls

Darwin Falls Professional Review and Guide

"This is a short hike to a delightful moist microclimate with multitiered waterfalls tucked away in a scenic canyon. Darwin Stream is the only permanent water in this area of the park.

Flowing from the China Garden Spring, Darwin supplies the town of Panamint Springs with water via a pipeline, which is visible on both the drive and the hike to the falls. This year-round water source sustains dense willow and cottonwood thickets in the valley and canyon as well as a thriving population of birds. Swifts and red-tailed hawks soar overhead."
