This isn't he highest peak in the park, but it was pretty high. The 365 degree view was spectacular. It was pretty awesome to stand on the peak and look down across the southern Death Valley basin (the salt flats on the basin floor were 282 feet below sea level). I think the peak stands at 5476 feet, so the... More

The drive up there is good. It's a bit cooler when you get up there, but it's still hot. It gives you a good all round view of the valley.

Dante's view is incredible for many reasons. There is the obvious and stunning vista on offer - a 360 degree panoramic view incorporating the valley itself, the Panamint and Sierra Nevada Ranges on the west side and the magnificent backdrop of endless Canyon Ranges as you look east over the state of Nevada. The view is accessible to anyone with... More

Spent a hour on this overlook in what was honestly one of the coldest moments of my life…and it was already April…yet we couldn’t tear ourselves away. Worth the drive and short trail walk to get there. Take a camera and the heaviest jacket you own. We got there a sunset and were treated to a lovely scene.

I used to be stationed at nearby Fort Irwin. While there, I went to Death Valley several times and thought I had seen almost everything that Death Valley has to offer, but I had never driven up to Dante's View. What a mistake that was. After having taken the 13 mile drive from CA-190, I can honestly say that the... More

About 40 min. from Furnace Creek Ranch up to 5.000 ft.+ for panoramic view of DV. Overlooks Badwater, lowest point in USA. Scenic and well-paved road, with turnouts and parking to leave trailers, which are prohibited higher up. Parking and short walking trails to vista points at summit. At the time I visited the wind was 30-40 mph, rocking parked... More

This is well worth seeing in Death Valley, and is rivalled only by Padre Crowley's point for the spectacular view. Highly recommended!

We were told by a park ranger to skip Badwater basin and see this instead. He was absolutely correct. The view was breathtaking.

This viewpoint is at the top of the mountain, on a breathtaking lofty height above the valley, with Badwater and the salt flats laid out at your feet. This is one of the best - if not THE best - views of the valley. You can look far up and down the main valley and across at the range to... More

For those that have a sedan or a family car this is one of the best views you can get to. At the parking lot there are little use trails that go to the north and south of the parking lot, south is lower, north is higher.
