From the parking lot, it doesn't look like it will be that exciting, but after walking uphill for a minute or two, you find a whole different world. I didn't have to good fortune to be here at sunset, so I'll have to come back. I'll bet it's even more amazing then.

Car park straight off the road and a short walk up the hill for some pretty good views. There are a couple of walks through the canyons which start here which look good but didnt have time to do them.

Utterly magnificent. Clotted cream coloured rocks looking like meringue. Others were bright red, black & orange.

We travelled from Stovepipe Wells towards our over night stay at Furnace Creek. This was on the route. We got there before we checked in. I’d have loved to have stayed longer but time didn’t allow. Take the camera and enjoy the calmness. If you travel to Badwater, I’m sure you see the other side of it.

Very easy stop just off the road, take the couple minutes to walk to the top. Keep in mind that the area is undergoing renovation for a while this winter, so you will not be able to walk as far. The dark, rugged lava formed rocks flanking the yellow flowing dunes of the badlands is a great sight. You'll feel... More

Very good viewing point just by the road (and with lots of tourists as a consequence). Not comparable with Aguereberry point view though.

Walking up the hill from the car park was a journey in itself in 115f heat but we made it to enjoy quite stunning views across the mountains and the valley itself. The sheer size and scale of these awesome natural surroundings was difficult to take in.

Conveniently located on the route to Furnace Creek and a short but steep walk to the viewing point, which seems more steep in the 40C+ heat and there are seats halfway if you do need to pause for a minute. The views are totally amazing, with the different rock formations and colours beyond description.Photographs cannot do justice to this landscape.... More

Nice views of the clay and surrounding mountains from here. Well worth a stop for a few photos. It's only a short 5 minute walk up to the viewing point.

If you have 20 extra minutes that's all you'll need to enjoy the landscape here. I'm glad we stopped here and took it in. It's interesting to see and one of the many different types of landscapes you will get in Death Valley.
