Hummingbird Spring

Hummingbird Spring Professional Review and Guide

"An exploratory hike into a piñon-juniper canyon below Panamint Mountain cliffs takes you into a remote canyon within bighorn sheep habitat, ending at a small spring. This hike provides exploratory opportunities for history bus ff or anyone who might enjoy a destination-less ramble in a lovely remote canyon high above Death Valley.

Although the spring is usually a mere trickle, the area contains dense piñon-juniper vegetation thanks to its mountainside setting. The elevation makes the hike suitable for a summertime outing in the Wildrose region of the park. Also, when the wind is intense on the ridges of the Panamints, the Hummingbird Spring valley offers some protection."
