March 30th 2012. Gower Gulch Loop visits some of the most stunning landscapes in Death Valley National Park. Occasional broken pavement offers a reminder that there was once a road through this canyon until a rainstorm washed it out in 1976. Several small canyons break off from the main channel, begging to be explored. Answering that call is the hiker’s prerogative. The single-track beneath Manly Beacon provides some of the finest views of the loop. At the high point of the divide, hikers can enjoy a mesmerizing panorama across the badlands.
