Jeeped up with a group and had the place all to ourselves. Great view, cooler air than in the valley below. Besides the fantastic views, also enjoyed the blooming flowers, cacti and the company of a lone crow and a colorful lizard.

Aguereberry point is a high view point in the Panamint Range of mountains that form the western side of Death Valley. At 6433 ft above sea level (and therefore about the same distance above the valley floor) it provides a remarkable view of both the north and south ends of Death Valley. In some ways it is similar to lower... More

Highly recommended. The view is beyond amazing - You are at 6433' looking down to Bad Water Basin at -282'. Good view of the Valley, north to south. We saw a large herd of Big Horn Sheep (approx 16) on the mountainside on the trip down. We "watched" each other for 15-20 minutes at a distance of 100-150yds. Very special!... More

Aguereberry Point is located high above the Death Valley floor in the Panamint Mountain range, sitting at an elevation of 6,433 feet above sea level. While this is not the highest point in the park, I do believe that it has the most amazing view. The lookout was original called “Grand View,” but was changed to Aguereberry Point a short... More

This place gives a spectacular view of Death Valley. Be sure to explore the surroundings; we parked our car on the side road before making a left turn up hill to Aguereberry Point and walked towards the right side on a trail. It's worth a short hike as we saw another side of the mountain where we won't be able... More

Near Telescope Peak, on the western mountains (The Panamints), while you can't drive up there, you can drive to Aguereberry Point and have another spectacular view from the other side of the Valley. Well worth taking the time.

Again, if you're only here for a day or two, feel free to skip this. There's no way you can see the whole park in a few day, weeks or even years! Aguereberry Point is beautiful and scenic but not in my top 5 of things to see if I'm only gonna be there for two days.

a bit of rough road getting there, but oh, so worth it! Better views of the valley than Dante's View! Can see Furnace Creek Ranch, and north. Take the one-lane road up to the top for best view, walk the ridge.

Road conditions vary out to this view point, so it is worth checking with the rangers regarding current conditions. We were glad to have a Jeep. The view is spectacular, but this is a bit of a long drive and far removed from the central area of the Park.

Well off the beaten path, but wholly worthwhile -- probably the best viewing spot in the park to which one can drive, but not for the faint-of-heart. The road is somewhat rough, and at the end, quite steep and precipitous.
