Golden Canyon peak bagging Date Climbed: Mar 16, 2017
Hiked up Golden Canyon with a detour to Manly Beacon. Continued to the Zabriskie Point TH and followed the well-worn trail up Red Cathedral. Hiked back to my car via Gower Gulch. I started early and the off-trail excursions allowed me to enjoy relative solitude for most of the six hours I spent in this very popular area. What an incredible day!
Very short hike, but scenic. Much more pleasant up there than at Zabriskie Point. The paved overlook at Zabriskie Point kind of ruins that spot for me.
We did some wandering in the area afterwards including Golden Canyon - Gower Gulch loop.
