Killer view of Death Valley. Truly amazing. Could see for miles in all directions and the view of DV at that scale was great. Came in the morning and then went to the valley. Came back later for the sunset and to see the stars. Had to wait about two hours after sunset but the Milky Way was visible from... More

Easy drive from Furnace Creek with delightful views in all directions! Don't miss this one - and don't stay in the parking area. Head up to the top!

Kind of a long drive from the Furnace Creek area but worth it. The view is spectacular. Understand that its pretty high and is going to be about 20 degrees colder than the valley, so dress accordingly. If you're a biker, have someone drop you off up there. WOW, what a ride down. Be sure your brakes are good.

Breathtaking! The park visitors center is great, a good movie explains the terrain and the people are helpful. Food at the ranch is not good and overpriced. Bring your own food and drink! Look at the stars and enjoy the absolute stillness.

The whole valley (it seems) is stretched out before you from this point. No wonder this got a 'gold star' in my guide book.

I was advised that Dante's View was a great place to watch sunset, and they were right! It was incredible. Allow plenty of time to get there though - the road is pretty slow and bendy towards the end.

The view was simply amazing and it was nice you could do a little hiking around (if you dare as there are no barriers). My husband and I started our Death Valley adventure with Dante's View and I am glad we did as we got to see all the other major spots from above and orientate ourselves. Must see
