3 Reasons to Hike Death Valley’s Cottonwood and Marble Canyons
Death Valley National Park is the largest national park in the continental United States. Known for its extremes, from terrain below sea level at Badwater Basin to stunning views of 14,000′ Mount Whitney, Death Valley has everything in between.
Find a Hidden Desert Oasis
With over 3.1 million acres of wilderness, Death Valley offers peaceful solitude rarely found in other popular parks and natural areas. Death Valley contains the largest federally designated Wilderness outside of Alaska, making up over 90% of the entire park. With any of Wildland Trekking’s Death Valley trips, you can experience the quiet, relaxing experience of being in nature.
From the starting trailhead, we begin our hike up the fertile Cottonwood Canyon, one of Death Valley’s true treasures. We will explore some twisty-turny side canyons before making our way via Dead Horse Canyon to stunning Marble Canyon. Descending into Marble Canyon, we’ll enjoy hiking through towering narrows and spot prehistoric petroglyphs along with ancient fossils.
