one for a bit later in the day - do the low level stuff first - the mesquite dunes at sunrise, then Badwater, then here (unless you want to see this place at sunrise), then Dante's view as the afternoon heats up

We went there for sunset. I took photos of the area as the sun was going down. The walkway has just been rebuilt, so it is nice. There is a climb from the parking lot to the top, but it is a paved path easy to climb.

Freshly paved and walk way to the point. Amazing views. Easy to get to if you are coming from Vegas to the ranch.

Easy walk from parking lot and as we reached the viewing area our phones started pinging as this was the first place in the park that we received a cell phone signal.

Very nice view of the surrounding hills, yielding beautiful shadow effects when the sun is at a low point (see picture). Also very close by Furnace Creek, so easy to reach if you stay there. At sunset, the sun will be setting after the hills which offer the nicest view from Zabriskie Point, but this can of course also make... More

Bring camera, sun tan lotion, a hat for panoramic view to enjoy. There is a path to the right of the paved area that gets you closer and away from all the tourist.

If you remember the 1969 film you'll love seeing where it was filmed. The landscapes are breathtaking and varied. Just off the main road, easy to get to.

It is easy to get there ( even in a wheel chair ) and the view is amazing ! Take the time for a 30 - 40 minutes hike down if you have the time , sun lotion and water . It is definitely worth it !

Easy walk. About 1/4 mile uphill on newly paved path. As the brochures say, it's best early in the morning or late afternoon.

This overlook has just been newly updated. Nice walking path - a little steep but no stairs so easily accessible. Views are absolutely amazing. Must see.
