Stopped here on our way into the park to watch sun set (we had been advised to try this). Lovely. Great view, quiet, lovely.

Long rambling 12 mile drive, very scenic and relaxing. The last quarter mile a bit terrifying. Worth it.

Loved the view...and the ride there. We went in mid October, and needed a heavy jacket. The winds were really blowing! The area at the top has plenty of parking and amazing views from every angle. Worth the trip!

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

We looked at various tours to Death Valley from Vegas and they were expensive. So we decided to rent a Mustang for the day and do it ourselves. Great way to do it. We had to put the roof back up when it went from...More

The views are well worth the twisted drive up the mountain side. From the top you get the most amazing views down over Death Valley. The sunset up there is stunning too! Lots of room to park and then just sit and observe, would guess...More

We drove to this lookout in early October and were incredibly impressed with the panoramic view of Badwater Basin and the Panamints. It's at about 5500' elevation, and the temp was around 54F at the viewpoint, with high winds, while we were there (with high...More

Our last stop at Death Valley at Dante’s View provided the best view of our visit. A steep uphill drive leads to a viewing platform just alongside the ample car park. The views of the salt flats and the valley are awesome and you can...More

It was worth the drive from Lone Pine, CA. The drive gave us perspective into just how vast and forbidding this area is and yet how beautiful such a landscape can be.

The parking lot is adjacent to the viewing point. The lot was not full when I was there, so it was easy to pull up next to the main sign/diorama of the valley and walk 15 feet (5 meters) to the railing at the lookout point.

From the parking lot, it only takes about 30 minutes to hike to the view point.
