The Mosaic Canyon Trail is an amazing hike for both first-time and long-time visitors of Death Valley National Park. A two mile drive up the gravel road on the western edge of Stovepipe Wells delivers hikers to the Mosaic Canyon Trailhead. The walls of smoothly polished marble immediately come together forming a short, stunning, tortuous narrows. Along the way, you may notice the mosaic-like breccia for which the canyon is named. Beyond these narrows, the canyon opens to a large wash, but the fun doesn’t have to end here. Several primitive trails work their way up the canyon to even more narrows, dry falls, and other fun discoveries. Mosaic Canyon is a perfect hike for families and seasoned desert hikers alike.
