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.

We randomly decided to drive off the road to this point and it was way beyond any expectations. The view is spectacular, it just takes your breath away. And we were the only ones up there. It just feels like a different planet. The drive up there is also fun. In approximately 2 hours that we spent driving there and... More

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
