This is a must see at Death Valley! You’re up high overlooking a beautiful and surreal landscape. There are white sand hills frosted with black lava... multi-colored hills... with Death Valley in the distance, backed by the Panamint Mountains. GO AT SUNSET to get a...More
We were advised that sunset from here is nice. The scenery is remarkable, and the sunset was lovely. We would up hiking the Golden Canyon which is just below Zabriskie Point which was much more beautiful and interesting than the view from above (but more...More
They have built this observation point to maximise the views and for great photos - the car park is enough to accommodate all visitors, and it is a short but steep climb to the ob point. The views are excellent, and there are plenty of...More
I didn't realize what this would be - then I saw the movie at the visitor center and was fascinated by the ridge trails through the Borax. When I stopped in for a quick visit up here I realized that there are a few trailheads...More
I had read that Zabriskie Point was the best spot for sunrise, so I decided to leave the family sleeping and head there alone. As I walked up to the lookout, I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. WOW! The landscape is just amazing....More
We had just completed a two week road trip of 10 national parks so I did not expect Death Valley to impress. It did!. Pictures do not do it justice. It has to be seen to really appreciate the vastness, the lack of vegetation, the...More
Walk up the hill to get a stunning sunset view over the mountains or opt to take one of the trails for a good walk. We didn’t get time for the walk there but it looked good. Be warned it get seriously hot so take...More

Usually the only snow you'll find in Death Valley area are on the high peaks. Therefore, most of Death Valley roads are accessible during winter months. You will see dessert scenery with snow covered mountains. I highly recommend staying at a hotel inside the park. We are in our 60's and stayed three nights at the Furnace Creek Ranch. Location was awesome! We did not hike, due to extreme heat during our June visit. Everything we visited was on paved roads and an easy walk to view point. Some of our favorite view points were Dante's View, Zabriskie Point, Badwater, Artist Drive, Ubehebe Crater (not to be missed, awesome!), Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes, Devil's Golf Course, Twenty Mule Team Canyon, Charcoal Kilns (beautiful ride and last 2 miles are on dirt road. No problems driving our car on the dirt road. Don't miss this, the scenery is spectacular). BEWARE - if you plan to visit Racetrace you'll have to rent a jeep near Furnace Creek Ranch. You will not make it with regular car and tires. We did not visit Racetrace.
