Hikes: We like to operate this trip as a multisport biking & hiking or even hiking only trip as there are so many great hikes. Anywhere from the flat 1-mile boardwalk hike along Salt Creek (home to an endemic fish, the adorable pupfish) to a 4-mile loop up Golden Canyon (where some of Star Wars was filmed) and down Gower Gulch to an epic all-day 8-14 mile hike in the Panamints up 9,064 foot Wildrose Peak, or 11,049 foot Telescope Peak
Kayaking: Only in reaaaaaaly wet years, but it did happen in 2005 that someone made the cover of the LA Times kayaking at Badwater
Misc: You must spend time in the natural spring water pool at either hotel. The reason for the hotels’ location is the spring. Mining history.
