Desolation Canyon Professional Review and Guide
"This lightly used route follows a narrow, serpentine canyon through a landscape of colorful badlands. The hike is an excellent alternative to often-busy Golden Canyon. This fine short hike, an uncrowded alternative to nearby Golden Canyon, surveys the dramatic badlands landscape eroded from the Furnace Creek Formation at the foot of the Black Mountains along the eastern edge of Death Valley. The trail-less hike actually follows an unnamed canyon (the east fork of Desolation Canyon), a longer and deeper gorge than Desolation Canyon proper."
