We almost didn't do this but it is actually one of the best sights in the area. It puts you in the middle of a salt lake like nothing you can imagine with views of the plain and the mountains all around.

After a short drive down a gravel road you come to the end. I don't believe there are any trails out here since the terrain is so rough. You can see the salt on top of the dirt and almost as far as the eye can see. Arrive early to avoid the extreme heat of summer.

Wow! It's interesting how these formed and just how much of a large area they cover. It's certainly worth a visit down a short gravel off-road to check them out more closely.

Worth a 10 minute stop if you're passing. Interesting views and salt formations but not significantly better than you can see from the main road.

The Devils golf course is a rocky outcrop of salt rubble. Can't walk on as you would break your ankle as it is so uneven. There is a drive down to review which is a bit uneven but not far.

Anywhere else, this would get a higher rating, but it sits among some fabulous sites in the park. On the plus side, it is on the same roadway as several key attractions like Badwater Basin, Artist's Drive and Golden Canyon. Worth the 10 minute side trip.

Come check out this little side road trip for a quick stop. Some interesting geology of the salt flats. I would not want to go walking out on the salt flats here as it is rough, sharp and jagged. Check out the interpretive signs and try and listen for the salt formations crackling. If you only have a day in... More

This is definitely a must see on a tour of Death Valley. Hard to imagine this exists just few hours from placing like Yosemite and Sequoia.

Yes only the Devil could imagine a golf course here. Another view testifying to the hardships our forefathers endured while traveling through Death Valley.
