Outstanding! DON'T MISS THIS
Apr 2021
The dirt road to get to the trailhead is bumpy but any sedan should be able to make it just fine. Go slowly. It's a 2 mile round trip and in April there was water flowing. About half of the hike is in the shade of trees growing by the stream that is fed by the falls. It's really a waterfall!

Perfect way to start your adventure in Death Valley
Mar 2021
This is at the entrance to the park when coming from the Ca side. It is the perfect way to get warmed up for the Valley! The road is not marked well and is a dirt road for 2.5 miles. The trail itself is lovely. The canyon has been carved out by nature, and you get to witness up close and personal the water's magic in moving through granite rock. The trail itself has a couple of balancing acts to cross over the river, so be prepared! The waterfall at the end is pretty amazing when you think how dry Death Valley is. Definitely a great way to kick off the trip!

Hard to imagine something like this exists in the middle of DV. Nice hike, beautiful area and a shirt distance from a great campground, Panamint Springs Resort

Like an oasis in the dessert

This is the only place in valley where you get natural access to fresh water and a lot of green. Its a great hike but Oct is not the best month imo to visit the falls. (Very less water)

Super fun hike

You have to really be looking for the turn of or you will miss it. If you get to the pizza/bar heading east, you just missed it. Turn around and go back, it is well worth it. Take water and a small snack to enjoy when you get there. You will come upon a small falls and will think you are there...you are not. Keep walking and you will be rewarded. It is a beautiful site in such a desolate area.

Good place to stretch your legs
Jan 2020
Driving the main road thru DV, one comes across an east gravel access road to Darwin Falls. It’s nice to have an uncrowded spot to get out and walk to the falls. I wouldn’t call it a hike, since it is mostly flat and very easy...but one is rewarded with a pretty fall coming from underground springs, and it’s a good place to stretch legs and enjoy a different part of DV.

Worth a side trip
Jan 2020
This is a short side trip if you're staying in Paniment Springs. It's amazing to see so much water in the middle of the desert.

Death Valley should be called the Valley of Surprises. Walk this very short and very easy trail up a running creek (spring fed, it's always there) to a gushing waterfall. What??? I'm in DEATH VALLEY????

This was a very nice hike. Only about 2 miles in and out. A little bit of scrambling over rocks and balancing on small logs over muddy/watery areas. Very pretty. Highly recommended.

They loved it a short hike and very nice worth the small trip near Panamint.
It isn't a hard hike but watch and read up or ask at the Panamint store
