A six-mile graded dirt road delivers viewers to one of Death Valley's most spectacular vistas, with views down into the valley, over to distant peaks and up and down the length of Death Valley.

while visiting the point we had another couple show up and they were from the same area of California that we were (small world). We made a day drive following the Emgranit trail from Stove Pipe to Ballarte. Saw the bee hives and had a beer with the old guy in Ballarte. Watch the jets fly really low and loud... More

Beautiful view but should only be accessed by experienced drivers with 4 wheel drive vehicles. We had a high clearance two-wheel drive truck, and an experienced driver, yet this nine-mile drive still terrified me! Narrow road, steep drop offs, and very heavy washboard road. With that said, once we arrived, the view was spectacular and the photography opportunity, outstanding.

The track to Aguereberey Point of approx 6 or 7 miles long, steep and unmade towards the end. On route you will pass through an old mining village, which is fascinating in itself. Once you arrow at the summit, high above the floor of Death Valley, the scenery is stunning. Well worth the drive.

Nice little trek to this place.Was extremely hot and sunny but very picturesque.Must for walkers and hikers.Onthe same path there is an ancient church but the name evades me at this point.Death Valley is pleasantly surprising place to visit.

This is a great place to visit late in the day when the western sun illuminates Death Valley below quite nicely. Usage is not that high so it's quiet. Stop by the old ruins of Harrisburg as you go out. Dirt road is fine.

Morning or late afternoon are the best times to visit as the colors in the mountains and valley will be at their best. The views from the parking area are nice but if you can walk 100 yards over a fairly flat but rough path the spectacle of the vast valley below is a wonderful reward.

Yes, it's a rough road in and out. Yes, you need a high clearance 4x4 vehicle. Yes, it's going to take time to make the drive. Finally, YES.... it is worth it!!! Go for it, you only live once and you'll be very happy that you did. Actually, a fun drive and lots to see along the way, but once... More
