Trail shared by Eric Ashley

A gentle canyon out-and-back, passing beneath Natural Bridge.

Features Views

Family Friendly This canyon and bridge is short and fun to explore. If younger hikers are feeling tired, the bridge makes an even shorter turn around point.

Description

This classic Death Valley hike follows a narrow canyon wash to pass under the park's largest rock span. If hikers are inclined, the trail continues climbing to a dry waterfall. The rough canyon and the dramatic bridge are products of the powerful erosional force of flooding over countless years.
