This is a lovely spot to watch the sunrise over Death Valley and the cliffs behind Golden Canyon. You don't have to get up as early as some other DV viewpoints to catch the sunrise as it's only 15 mins drive from Furnace Creek. Be aware though you can't currently get to the spot where most of the photos you... More

It was hot, sunny, and breathtakingly beautiful. Our photographs don't do it justice. If heading that way, make the effort to stop and look. We would do it again.

Can't imagine people going there early 1900! It's an out of this planet place. The lava formed an incredible view, and the heat that comes from this yellow rocks can fry an egg! All the history that one can learn visiting this spot show us how brave was men and women at that time! You can take amazing pictures from... More

Zabriskie Point is one of the main attractions at Death Valley, it's very easy to access with a parking lot and uphill trail. The views are amazing here, in almost ever direction. I hiked down off the main trail to get a closer shot of the terrain to get a different view than most of the people who come here.... More

The main reason we went to Zabriske Point was because my husband really liked the film & the book & wanted to visit the place that inspired both these. Glad we did. The views across the valley from there were amazing. Certainly worth a visit.

This vista is a must, definite, absolute stopping point. Blown away (literally) by the landscape. 114'f with a fierce wind...completely indescribable and a must stop place to see and get a few pictures. Death Valley journeys should include this without doubt

The place is minblowing for the first time viewers. simply awe inspiring. we did trek down to the 'folded' mountains but to tell you the truth the view from the top is the best and only thing worth. There is nothing you may enjoy trekking down even though it is not a long or tiring one. I recommend enjoy the... More

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.
