There is a new perspective of the canyon and the badlands seen from Zabriskie Point around every corner and worthy of many photographs!

A sometimes narrow, one way drive it had some pretty decent rocks, views and interest points. It wasn't the most important thing to do but an easy change between the viewpoints of Dante and Zabriewski. We drove it in the morning and there was no one in front of or behind us. Since there were not always places to pull... More

My husband wanted to take me on this drive as he had done it before on his Adventure Motorcycle with his guy friends. It was a fun one way road that curved along the hills of the canyon. Some of the turns were quite tight so a BIG vehicle would have a hard time making the turns but could still... More

We drove thru the Canyon after sunrise at Dante's View. The road is of course dirt, but was in good condition. Some very interesting formations and colors along the drive.

Though a well maintained dirt road, the drive could cause some street drivers a little anxiety. Do it, you'll be looking to buy a 4x4 when you get home.

Twenty Mule Team Canyon is a one way drive on a narrow, unpaved road that is graded but still a thrilling drive. We have a SUV but it could be done in a car. It's an amazing close-up trip through all the beauty of Death Valley.

This is an easy side trip off of Highway 190 just a few miles from Furnace Creek. The road is dirt but fairly smooth. It's a one way drive but does have a few tight corners but shouldn't be a problem if you have any experience driving dirt or gravel roads. The hills along the Canyon drive are different than...

As seniors, we remember the commercials for 20 mule team borax so it was a treat to visit this part of Death Valley. It is interesting to read the information on how it was mined.

But I rented a jeep and bounced along, stopping at a few places to wander. Great scenery is only seen by those who get out and walk.
