Notes

Little Hebe Crater & Ubehebe Crater is an easy kid friendly hike in Death Valley. Native Americans called it "big basket in the rock." The trail around the Little Hebe Crater & Ubehebe Crater in Death Valley provides hikers with an up-close view of the park's volcanic history. The craters formed when magma rose the surface and met water causing an explosion that left behind the craters. They are considered sacred by local Native American Tribes and thus should be considered that way by hikers as well. Tread lightly and as always when hiking the desert take precautions and carry plenty of water. Short hikes can turn into deadly ones in Death Valley without proper preparation. There is camping available in Death Valley National Park.
