"Wow" was my wife and my first reaction when we got off our SUV in Dante's View's parking lot. The view of the valley was unbelievable. Badwater, Telescope Peak and Furnace Creek are all within sights. The huge salt pan and the amazing vertical drop from Telescope Peak to Badwater was particularly stunning (almost 2 miles!). Combined with sunset lights... More

We drove in from Las Vegas along the Badwater Basin road so we had walked out onto the saltpans before heading up to Dante’s. It is the best view and my overall pick in the Park available on the paved roads. The Badwater Basin and the surrounding mountains from up here look magnificent. Driving up is scenic and if you...

An unbelievable sidetrip with an astounding view of the valley below. Fun drive to the top and a large, paved, parking lot as well. Peaceful and beautiful, a real spot to take in all the amazing surroundings. Whatever you do, don't bypass this short sidetrip. It is something you will never forget. Charlie & Agg F.

After driving from Vegas in the morning to Scottys Junction, We had lunch at Furnace Creek, and then proceeded to Zabriske point, which I must say was pretty cool too. But upon arrival at the junction to Dante's View, I was conflicted as to whether the 26 mile detour would be worth it. Let me say that it was the... More

I never thought I would enjoy the desert so much. The landscape is not a bland sand filled place but its rugged with canyons, of every color... tan...brown...red...pink...gray..yellow...and the blue sky! From Dante's View to the sand dunes, there is lots of variety, plenty of hikes and incredible natural beauty!

During my trip to Death Valley in the last week of March, one of the stops I made was Dante's View. It is a bit of a drive down a nice paved road, but definately worth the detour. The best part was coming up the last few switchbacks to the parking lot and suddenly seeing the huge vista before you!... More

13 mile drive is worth it. Just a few switchbacks at the top. From the parking lot we hiked 10-15 min for some great views and nobody around. The trail is not marked, but follows the ridge line. You can go as far as you want. Fun family hike.

My friend and I took a day trip through death valley and decided to go to Dante's view based on some suggestions on here(even though we didn't really have time to do it). It was definitely the highlight of the whole park! Its about 20 min from the main road to the lookout. The road is pretty easy, and then... More

Breath taking view of the park below and taller mountains across. Look down upon the salt flats and up at telescope peak. Well worth the excursion up the winding road.

I've visited Dante's View four times and it's truely astounding. I scattered my brothers ashes there at sunset 10 years ago because I felt it was one of the most beautiful and peaceful places on this earth. I'm going back in May to scatter my mothers ashes. It was her last wish.
