  • A great place to see and learn about the history of the valley when driving through for a visit. This short trail shows the mining history of the region with some buildings that still stand here and a full mule powered land train that brought supplies to the miners and carried the borax out. Though the main draw of the valley is the natural scenery, here you can learn more about the history of the region and what originally led people here.
  • Short, easy hike where you get to learn about the history of Death Valley and how life and landscape has changed over time. Got to see lots of rare pupfish playing and hanging out. Fun hike but make sure to carry water.
  • Salt Creek is a really neat walk. If you're lucky, you'll get to see the elusive pupfish. It's really incredible that they can survive these harsh conditions.
  • There are fish! Tiny little pupfish (a little bit bigger than guppies). Amazing to see this small Creek full of life running through the area.
  • It's something new for me know that fishes will reborn with every rain here..
