Wonderful views

You can do some very short hikes from the parking lot. Worth it for the views. A long drive up to the top and RV's not allowed.

13 miles of paved road, a few tight turns towards the end, but no problem in a passenger vehicle. At the end of the 13 miles you'll find yourself at the rim called Dante's View. At a little over 5,000 feet, you have a commanding view of Death Valley in both directions. Every which way you look is worth a... More

Except for the final 1000 feet, it is a very gradual climb (in car) up to the top. It is 13 miles off main road, but the view is well worth it. It is also about 25 degrees cooler than the valley below. Really gives a great perspective on the whole national park.

This is a nice long drive up a paved road. The reward is beautiful views of the entire Death Valley Park. Don't leave the park without going to Dante's View.

Bring a charger for your camera. Every view is worth a "snap shot" The wind can be forceful. If you look straight down you can see Badwater Salt Bed.

For the hiking challeged or those on a tight time schedule, this is a sure-fired bet. The drive is twisty and narrow in places, but otherwise easy. Unless you need to use the bathroom, there is no need to pull into the "parking" area 500 feet before the summit. Nearly evryone we saw made this mistake (unless you really needed... More

It is a good way from anywhere, It is high up and has great views down over the salt flats. It is well worth the drive out to see it.

Definitely worth the trip. Unfortunately our energetic hiking days are past but sitting up high and enjoying wonderful views down this beautiful and amazing valley brought back many great memories.

We drove out early in the morning to get a panoramic view of the valley. Expect wind and cool temperatures in the morning, so bring a jacket. View is spectacular, no matter what time of the day, since you are about a mile high in elevation. Depending on the time of day, you will get more sun or shadows in... More
