Deadman Canyon is a glacier-carved canyon in Kings Canyon National Park. Its namesake is an Iberian sheep-herder who died and is buried there.
Deadman Canyon is located almost directly north of Elizabeth Pass, between Ranger Meadow and Scaffold Meadows, in the south-central area of the park. The canyon is surrounded by steep granite walls, and is traversed by a stream.
Plant life in the canyon include aspens and pines, along with buckwheat, sagebrush, Indian paintbrush, Mariposa lily, columbine, delphinium, daisy, Mexican hat, penstemon, pennyroyal, and shooting star.
