Foundry Canyon

Foundry Canyon Professional Review and Guide

"For the Death Valley canyon collector, this short hike is a must. With dramatic elevation gain and cool labyrinthine slots running deep into a cleft of the Black Mountain range, Foundry Canyon will challenge any hiker’s range of adjectives.

From the parking area on the east side of Badwater Road, head up the sandy wash wending its way up the alluvial fan toward the Black Mountain range. With good scouting and a bit of luck, the creosote-dotted path will take you all the way to the canyon mouth, 0.6 mile away. We discovered this route on our way down from the canyon, and it was vastly more pleasant than the heavily cobbled route we stumbled up."
