Definitely worth a stop if you want to see what Death Valley is all about. You drive unclose into the middle of the basin and get close look at the dried out salt crusted terrain. Very impressive!

This is something to see up close and personal. The size of the crystals and just the sheer expanse of them is unbelievable! It's a very short dirt road off the main road. a must see!

On my first trip to Death Valley I tried to pack in as many of the attractions and I could in a couple days. It was April so it wasn't dangerously hot, but still close to 100 degrees in the low areas. The Devil's Golf Course is easy to access, just spend about 10 minutes there and you're ready to... More

You have to drive the small unpaved road to see this. Hard to describe because I've never seen anything like it. Very windy so hold on to your hat and sunglasses. Great place to take pictures. Make sure you have lots of water.

Travelled to this area in the november of 2013. Was relatively quiet due to being out of season which added to the visit really with it still being 90 degrees plus. I will never forget the complete silence with no movement of life or even any wind.

This was on the way to Badwater, but there is a small travel back a very bumpy road to get to it. We did get out of the car for this one in the smoldering heat and took some pictures. Pretty neat! I recommend this for a quick stop.

Interesting formations, but I don't see the draw to this location. If you're in to different formations this one is for you. I'd recommend passing if you have limited time.

If visiting Death Valley National Park, the Devil's Golf Course is worth a short visit (10 or 15 minutes). The area consists of rock salt pinnacles several feet high and some nice views of Telescope Peak.
