Death Valley National Park has announced the dates for tours to Copper Canyon for the upcoming winter/spring season. There will be three tours on the following Saturdays; November 24, February 9, and March 2. Sign up for the hikes begins about a month before the tour and involves putting your name in a lottery due to high demand. More information can be found at this link–
I last took this tour about 6 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. The pictures below show our group being guided up by a park ranger to the tour area and also a secret side canyon we got to explore once the official tour had ended. I can’t wait to take it again someday and I am sure that you will enjoy it, so be sure and put your name in the lottery if you will available for the tours on those dates. I think the lottery system was a great idea, because if I recall, last year the tour dates sold out within minutes of opening for reservations. So this is definitely a more fair system for everyone to have a chance. This is one of those hikes where I can’t share many pictures, so many surprises are in store for you if you go.
