2.5 mile dirt road to parking area and then a one mile walk back to the first water fall. The last stretch of the walk is a bit overgrown and it is almost bushwhacking to continue through to the water but well worth the effort.

Bring your camera. You won't believe how lush this area is. Once you exit the parking lot to the trail to the falls, you might be greeted by a Chuckwalla and discover a small stream that will guide you further up the hills to a...More

Wonderful hike. Very bumpy road to get to trailhead parking, so plan to spend a bit more time getting their even though it isn't too far from main highway. The trail gets interesting once you get to the canopy of trees. It felt like I...More

This short hike is mostly in the sun with uncomfortable sand to walk through, but reaching the verdant and shaded parts is absolutely worth it! It’s a bit discombobulating to find a beautiful waterfall in the middle of Death Valley! The man-made oasis is now...More

The sign for this was off the main road - you had to make the turn off the paved road onto the gravel road to see the sign. So of course we missed it, but turned around. It's the first left after you pass Panamint...More

The dirt/gravel road leading to the trailhead is several miles long and very rough with many sharp rocks- use caution when in a car. The hike in isn't difficult until the last 100 yards or so when climbing over some rocks is necessary, but not...More

After days of no vegetation and very little in the way of animal life, this was a welcome oasis in the desert. We saw lots of beautiful plants and birds. The trail was easy, except for the very last part to the falls. No indication...More

This is a beautiful waterfall in the middle of the desert and it is an easy 2.5 mile walk round trip. To get to the trail you have to drive on a dirt road for a few miles.

We weren't sure about the road to the trailhead, and almost turned back. So glad we kept going! The start of the trail is pretty but not too exciting - along a gravel path (former road?). But once you turn into the canyon, it gets...More

Road conditions vary... but my Honda CRV did just fine. Most of the other cars at the trail head were trucks... except for the one sedan.

There's a sign posted at the parking lot that specifically says no dogs. There are other areas in the park that allow dogs.
