Grotto Canyon is a 2.1 mile hike in Death Valley National Park featuring a fun slot canyon - making the trail exciting for all ages and skill levels.

This is a rewarding hike with immediate payoff. After less than half a mile, you'll come across dry falls. Dogs are allowed on this trail but must be kept on leash. Make sure your vehicle has 4WD to avoid getting stuck in the deep sand in the parking area and on the drive.
