Activities & Features


Fall Canyon is a tough hike in Death Valley that features stunning canyon scenery. It is often argued Fall Canyon is the most scenic in Death Valley. We will not endorse that, but we also will not argue against it. The narrows of Fall Canyon provide ample opportunities for adventure. Bouldering opportunities and geological splendor are everywhere along this route. Often overshadowed by its better known neighbor Titus Canyon, Fall Canyon may also supply solitude for those who desire a deeper wilderness experience. There is some minor scrambling involved along this trek, hence it may not be the best for small children. Keep an eye peeled for dry waterfalls along the way. As always when hiking canyon country, be aware of any potential flash flood danger and carry all the necessary equipment and plenty of water. There is camping available in Death Valley National Park.
