One of the lowest points on Earth. Bring hat and plenty of drinking water because it is sweating hot. It is not necessary to walk too much. You can view the area from the starting point itself. Still you can go further for a walk if you like.

Badwater is nearly 300ft under sea level and the salt flats at Badwater are well worth the visit. On your way back, take the one way “Artists Drive” for some more fantastic scenery.

We didn't enjoy these salt flats very much... we just expected a bit more out of them than a stripe of salt on the ground. Something that would extend in all directions. Some of the photos are misleading. By all means, if it's on your way have a look, we are not saying it's terrible, just probably not worth the detour.

108 degrees at 11am on a early May morning meant no long walks to the middle of the salt flat area. But from the parking lot you can get all the photo ops you need only walking 50-100 feet. Besides, you have to stop and visit the lowest spot on earth even if only for a few minutes. There is a sign high up on the cliff wall that shows you where sea level is which is cool, but it doesn’t really photo well - at least not with the amount of time we wanted to waste trying to do it in the heat. Do this first then on the drive back north stop by Devils golf course for a quick snapshot and take a leisurely drive through Artists palette.

Definitely worth a stop and the walk out into the salt fields. You should bring water and a hat/protection against the sun. We went in April before tripple digit temperature and it was still hot.
