I was concerned about the road after reading reviews, we had a large Toyota Tundra, but it was simple winding and the trip out had a good number of wildflowers. The view is certainly worth it. The raoad is not to windy till the end. They have pit toilets. Such an incredible place.

This view appeals to specific groups in my opinion. As a hiker I like going on challenging hikes in solitude and being rewarded with excellent views at the top as a reward for the effort. Dante's view is more of a tourist destination. This is a good place for families or people who are not physically able to go on... More

Enjoyable drive up with pretty wildflowers. Great view of Telescope Mountain and salt basin. Zabriskie Point also worth stopping by.

the view is well worth the drive, and in the first week of april there were lots of wildflowers! shortly after turning onto the road up to dante's view, there was an off-road that we took and there they were! the drive to the top is easy and relatively short, and we made it fine with our non-existent-clearance minivan. the...

About 15 minutes from the parking lot to get to the top, where there is small plaque mounted on the rock, and a fantastic view of the valley and photo opportunities. Must see.

Easy 35 -45 min drive from Furnace Creek area to large parking area. Views are very good, but if you are getting up early to take pictures you may be disappointed. The suns rise over this area is slow. This prevents the early morning colors from really popping out at you. Since this was only one day, it may be... More

We bicycled to a point and then got a ride up this steep hill to Dante's View and it was worth it. Looks down on a huge portion of the valley and then almost 20 miles away.

Dante's view is about a 45 minute (28 mile) drive from Furnace Creek Inn or Ranch with paved roads all the way. Your car will get a work out, as in those 28 miles the road climbs to 5,476 and at Furnace creek your pretty close to sea level to start with. Only the last couple of miles is curvy... More
