amazing views. This was our first stop in Death Valley on New Years Day. We had no idea what we were in for. My ten year old nephew enjoyed climbing up and down the hilly paths.

Arrive 30 minutes before sunrise to see the skies light up. Sixteen miles south of Furnace Creek, standing on the Black mountains of the Amargosa range, at about 5,500 feet you're looking east at the Greenwater range. Several paths nearby give alternative viewpoints. Many photographers stay after sunrise to catch pictures of the sun lighting the Valley. Per Wikipedia: "Dante's... More

It's a beautiful hike to catch the sunrise. Easy 30-45 minute drive from Furnace Creek and you can view from the parking lot or climb the small hill nearby. Sadly, rather than drive a few yards down the hill to the restroom, many have opted to use the area around the viewpoint, as evidenced by bits of toilet paper. However,... More

Death Valley is a mecca for geologists, and Dante's view is the mosque. Go here first to see the scale and grandeur. And, see the lowest and highest points in the continental US from one spot.

Stunning views of Death Valley and beautiful sunsets especially. Road up to the top is quite steep near the end--no trailers on that portion.
