We were at Dantes on 2/20 and found it to be a great view on the valley. Be prepared for some wind and cooler tempatures (we ended up wearing our winter coats and gloves) but the view is worth it. You get a good view from the parking lot but hike the 1/4 mile out to the overlook for a... More

I think Dante's view is the perfect destination - the views are awesome, the road is beautiful. I believe the height of that place is just right for the views you see, we also visited Aguereberry Point which is at higher elevation and while it was also very nice I liked Dante's view more. But the time of the day... More

Possibly one of the most beautiful view points on earth, it's a photographers paradise. It is a must when visiting Death Valley. Easy access via paved and well maintained road and parking lot.

Wow. Just wow! Don't miss this view: entire Valley! Paved road the entire way. If you are traveling into Valley via 129 right on your way in or out.

The view from the top was spectacular. We were there at dusk, with many others. Dante's View has an otherworldly feel. It is one of many features in Death Valley that make the park far more than the dusty dry gulch I anticipated.

A winding drive on a paved road takes you to one of the most unbelievable views I have ever seen! You can literally see forever - almost - in practically every direction. Be prepared - the temperature there will be about 25 degrees cooler (colder) than the valley floor. Definitely a must see in Death Valley!

Dante's View is magnificent. I went with friends. The drive is nice and very steep. The view of the valley below is breathtaking. Go on a clear day or you will be in the clouds. There are no facilities available at the top. You can hike some of the hills if you are fit and steady on your feet. I... More

This is an excellent starting point when visiting Death Valley. The road is easy to climb and the views are amazing. No rails so watch your step! Worth the detour!
