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.

Awesome vistas. Plenty of subjects for shutterbugs. Take a walk around the area to get better views.

It was a drive bck there but well worth it. And be sure to walk as far as you can. You won't be dissapointed. The views are amazing and you truly can see so much from this site. Great place for pictures.

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

We were told by a person at a gas station in the area that this place has the best scenic views in death valley. It's a challenging drive and 4 wheel drive is suggested. We reached the top and there was no body and it was really awesome. You will get to see the salt beds and highest peak in... More

Everybody goes to Dante's View on the east side of Death Valley, but few people ever go out to Aguereberry Point. It's a long drive from Furnace Creek, so consider stopping here on your way into the valley if coming in through the Trona entrance. Usually you'll have this place to yourself. The tranquility and view are to die for.... More

Once you get there, you can see Dante's View across the canyon, but a four-wheel drive would make the trip a little less challenging.
