As impossible as it sounds there is a spring fed waterfall that runs year round in Death Valley, well technically Panamint Valley. Same desert, so I digress. The gravel road wasn’t challenging to find. It is really easily spotted once you blow right past it....More

The 1st "falls" is a quick-running downhill stream, about 1 mile from the parking area. The main Darwin Falls is quite a hike further in. If you're physically able, it's worth going all the way. If not, the 1st one is quite beautiful & worth...More

A bit of a hike so be prepared. So worth it to see water in the desert. Invest the time and be prepared.

This is a hidden gem. There were less people on this walk than others we did in Death Valley, but we thought this was one of the best. A gem of an oasis - water fall at the end.

Hands down this hike should not be missed. It is the ONLY water source in Death Valley and feeds the "resort" at Panamint Springs. A short hike and very enjoyable.

Surprising to find a waterfall in Death Valley! It's a nice hike up a wash, a little boulder scramble and then the falls.

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