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!
Had 1 hour to spare before leaving the area. Nice breezy ridge hike.
2010 - solo, Red Cathedral and later in the day Manly Beacon.
Stopped here after doing Schwaub and Winters earlier in the day. Trip Report
I love the views of this peak and from this peak. It is out of this world!!
We did this one after Manly Beacon and "Golden Canyon Peak". I totally love this area!
A nice four peak day in Death Valley
Red Cathedral was a nice ridge hike. Few people travel up the mountain compared to the hundreds at the parking lot.
Nice sunset hike. Awesome views from the top.
Went up at dawn, passed some photographers about halfway along and then saw not another person until I was almost back at the the trailhead. With a digital camera this time, I didn't have the problem of running out of film before the summit that I had last time.
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.
