Marble Canyon Road Professional Review and Guide

"This is a Death Valley classic, and one of the park’s best backpacking routes. From the western edge of Death Valley, this loop first goes up through spectacular Marble Canyon, where long, tight narrows adorned with beautiful petroglyphs will guide you deep into the mountain. You will then look for a cross-country route across a rarely traveled ridge to upper Cottonwood Canyon, the wildest and only challenging part of this hike. In Cottonwood Canyon, you will hike down through three amazing springs, lush islands of cottonwoods, willows, and grapevine miraculously irrigated by a perennial creek. The inner canyon below the springs wind through a meandering gorge and offers several exciting side canyons for further exploration."
