Golden Canyon

Hello everyone! This is a friendly reminder that any of these fun places we may visit, we are a guest at. Please treat both businesses and trails with the utmost respect. We here at Hidden California follow the 'Leave no Trace' mantra, meaning whatever you bring with you comes back with you. If you see trash on a trail, please do your part to help remove it. Remember, we are not picking up trash from another person but instead cleaning up for Mother Nature. Happy adventures!

Death Valley is one of the most remarkable places to visit in California.  Just the fact that so much diversity exists in such close quarters to each other in a vast desert makes this a place to visit.  The name Death Valley is scary, but the place is remarkable.

While you’re in the area, make sure to visit Mesquite Flats Sand Dune nearby!

One of the spots we visited while out here was Golden Canyon, which has drawn fame as being one of the film locations for Star Wars. Trust me when I say that my photos do not do it justice.  My camera also died before we hit the overlook which was such a shame! Golden Canyon is a 3 mile loop hike that will take you through warm-hued hillsides which feel as though you’ve landed on another planet. An adventure indeed!
