Amazing - when we got back there, we were surprised to see so many people! It's not like we saw a lot of cars up to that point. But Dante's View draws people that like to have their picnic lunch. It looked like a tailgate when we were there, people were grilling hot dogs in the parking lot! The views... More

The road from Las Vegas to Dante's View takes over two hours, more or less. Make sure to drive a reliable car and have plenty of drinking water, preferably in a cooler. In September, the temperatures were around 47 degrees Celsius (about 118 Fahrenheit). Getting out of the car feels like stepping into a well heated oven, with no mits... More

From Dante’s View, over 1 mile (1.6k) above Badwater, one takes in an amazing view of nearly the entire Death Valley, salt pan and all, as it disappears into the horizon to the north. Looking directly across the valley, 21 miles (34k) away, one sees Telescope Peak, at 11,049 feet (3,368m) and snow capped much of the year, the highest... More

Walking out to the end is beautiful. Ranger Jonathon was knowledgeable and very friendly. He was full of facts and had a good sense of humor.

This would have to be the scenic lookout in fabulous Death Valley, taking the view from Badwater right up toward the northern end of the park. Simply stunning. If you only have time to visit one viewsite, then this is the one. If you have time to visit several, then this should be No 1 on your list.

Excellent view! very windy, be sure to bring your coats. After your hit the parking lot, you can hike out for about 20 min to get a better view (no block,) but it is pretty windy (Nov/2014,) so be careful about your young kids.

Recommend going late in the day...the cooler temps on top of the mountain will be enjoyable and the view of the sunset across the valley is great. Also, enjoyed the peace and quiet. Great way to end a day in the heat of the desert.

We were advised by the fantastic ranger at the Furness Creek ranger station to add Dante's Peak to our list and he was bang on the money. The views going up the road were so good it even got our kids off their pads. At the top even our 15 year old son who 'hates everything' loved it. We even... More
