Darwin Falls in Death Valley National Park (with Map & Photos)

Darwin Falls is a picturesque waterfall found on the western edge of Death Valley National Park, one of the driest places on the planet. And what is better, the waterfall flows throughout the year!

Situated in a lush oasis accessible by a 3km round trip hike, Darwin Falls features lush vegetation, birds, insects and frogs. It's an amazing show in the desert! The hike is relatively easy, with less than 300 feet of elevation change, but it does involve some stream crossings.

The trailhead is reached by a somewhat rough and unmarked dirt road about a mile west of Panamint Springs Resort. The road is generally considered passable for sedans, but take it easy.
