Death Valley National Park is located primarily within Southern California and has a small portion that extends into Nevada. It is the largest national park within the lower 48 United States and approximately 95% of the park is designated wilderness area.

There is great family hiking within the park and there are a number of trails that are suitable for less experienced hikers. However, temperatures can be dangerous during the summer months and families should check with a ranger before setting out. Easy trails include the Golden Canyon Interpretive Trail, Natural Bridge Canyon, Salt Creek Interpretive Trail, and the Titus Canyon Narrows. There are several strenuous hikes through the mountains that are good way to stay cool during the summer, including Telescope Peak Trail and Wildrose Peak Trail.
