  • nice little tour of a few minutes on a flat track with a few turns of history to relate the Mule carrying borax!

  • To the beautiful Canyon leads apparent narrow one-way road. On the sides of her beautiful sand-yellow hills, but go long and hard road. Better look from the side, rather than overcome all the way. History of the Canyon: in the Valley of the quarries was once mined ore and carried it into the huge animal-drawn carts, horse-18 mules and 2 horses. For simplicity, all the animals called 20 mules, and the way they moved, called Canyon 20 mules.

  • Very cool stop off. We didn't get a chance to hike back some but was very happy with quick stop.
  • Good view on Twenty Mule Team Canyon. It's one of more canyon in Death Valley National Park.
  • Once you get in, there is no other way out, you need to take this bumpy ride for around 15mins to get out, you vehicle will definitely getting dirty after passthu here. But how can you miss this real natural route, how can you really experience those travellers in the past when you only stay on those man-made roads
  • Very good
  • This narrow canyon may look unassuming from right off the main road, but be careful, once you get onto the tiny road going up and down the canyon, it can feel miles away, especially in a tiny rental car. Be careful and make sure you are comfortable doing some light offroading before heading down here. I nearly got stuck a few times in my rental. The canyon is awesome though and feels like you are alone on another planet. The views of the canyon walls and changing colors of the rocks, especially around sundown are incredible.
