    Route Description for 20 Mule Team Canyon Trail

    While 20 Mule Team Canyon Trail is a fairly easy route, it is not on designated Death Valley National Park pathways, and so care should be taken. We recommend bringing some sort of mapping tool with you to help aid you in your navigation.

    Having made it to the trailhead, simply head in a southern direction towards the cliff faces in the foreground. Being careful to not get too close to the cliffs, follow the trail to the rim of the dropoff where scenic views can be enjoyed. Once you have had an opportunity to take in the sights, backtrack your steps towards the trailhead, and your waiting vehicle.
