It's not a place where you'll spend the whole day, because it's HOT. It was 85 in February. And there isn't much to do, but you can get shoot some fantastic photos! You can climb around the hills, which is what we did, but remember that what you climb down from the observation point, you'll have to climb back up... More

Incredible views. We viewed this in afternoon, but many told me it's great at sunset. My aunt couldn't see it though, because it's a short hike up a hill. But, most people should be able to manage the hike. Their are pit bathrooms. Really beautiful formations.

I cannot say enough about the splendor of Zabriskie Point. Truly one of the most incredible sights I have ever seen, and cannot wait to go back and take the hike down towards the Badlands.

This was my first trip to Death Valley, so anything here appear new to me. Since it was part of a tour package, I didn’t have that much time to anything else other than a quick stop-and-shoot-photo routine. To get to Zabriskie Point, I remember the drive took a quite a while, as the bus made it slowly onward through... More

Very pretty views at Zabriskie Point. Easy acces parking, and the walk up to the view is pretty easy, though it is up hill! Its a great place to stop and stretch your legs a bit, get a few nice photos and carry on your way..or make it a start/stop point for your day hiking trip. We did not venture... More

A nice but steep walk up to the viewing point - even handicapped can access it. A true photo shoot spot.

Fantastic view of the badlands, easy walk from parking area. A bit further from the viewing area is is where we found totally unmarked trails, easy going down, but coming up, impossible to tell what is a trail and what is a water washed out area, use caution.

Zambriskie point is a must stop if your in death valley. Easy to find off the main road in the park. Take the 190 southeast from furnace creek for about 4 miles you will see the parking area on the west side of the road. Here there is plenty of parking also plenty of people. (arguably the top viewpoint in... More

This was a nice overlook with interesting rock/soil colorations and formations that can be viewed. There is a bit of an inclined walk from the parking lot up to the lookout point.

Zabriskie point is one of the more popular view points in Death Valley. It is quite attractive to photographers at sunrise and sunset but is a grand view at any time. It's only a 6 minute drive from Furnace Creek Ranch and there are restrooms there. Zabriskie Point does not offer the vast views you get at Dante's View or... More
