Darwin Falls | Death Valley National Park, California

Darwin Falls oasis is fed by a spring so powerful that it cascades as a large waterfall 80 feet down a cliff face year-round, giving rise to a seemingly unique and isolated tropical community of birds, frogs, reeds, ferns and trees surrounding the large pond at the base of the falls. The stream and the unique life zone then meanders along another quarter mile creating a few smaller singing waterfalls before finally disappearing into the floor of the arid desert canyon below. 2-Mile RT; approx. 2500 > 2700ft **Good Trail, Sketchy Near Falls** Click image or title above for more…
