From the Golden Canyon trailhead, enter the canyon and follow the gravel wash on a gradual but steady uphill grade. Numbered markers you see along the way correspond to the Golden Canyon Interpretive Trail pamphlet available for purchase at the trailhead or the visitor center. The Golden Canyon trail ends at a signed trail junction one mile from the trailhead. For the best view of Red Cathedral's fluted walls, hike ¼ mile further up the main wash, keeping to the right at forks in the drainage.
Length: 1 mile, one-way.
Start: Golden Canyon parking area, 2 miles south of Hwy 190 on Badwater Road.
