There is a somewhat steep climb from the parking area, but takes less time than you think. Our family thought the views at the top were worth the climb. We visited on a summer day when the temp was above 115F. We rested on the thoughtfully provided benches once or twice on the way up. When you get to a... More

Can't see the view from the road / car park but the uphill climb of only 100m was well worth it. Brilliant.

This was our first stop in Death Valley. Put on the sunscreen and take along water even though it seems like just a short hike up the hill. Spectacular views from the top.

Visited here whilst in Vegas. Great views of the landscape and some memorable photos taken. We didn't go further into the national park itself as there didn't seem much point paying to see more of what we had already seen.

A climb up hill is worth the wow view. This area is a Photo Spot--previously would have been called a Kodak Moment. Ample parking at the bottom of the hill. Extra special at sunset.

Liked it a lot, great colors and views, not sure about the IQ level of the idiots that balance themselves on one leg on the edge to look good on a facebook pic though, I had to wonder how many have fallen down.

You can visit this on the main road into Furnace Creek from Las Vegas which is convenient. There is a car park nearby and a short walk ( welcome in the summer heat) takes you to Zabriiskie Point. The views are very unusual in keeping with this unique area.

Even with the 119 degree heat, this was an incredible view from the lookout and something every member of the family can enjoy. The walk up to the lookout is not that far and do-able by even moderately healthy people. Make sure you take water even for a short time as it is extremely hot and dry in the summer.... More

I've been weirded out by the movie, I've enjoyed the Pink Floyd soundtrack and now I've finally seen the place. Definitely worth a visit.
