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

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.
