“Really fun and amazing drive!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

This was one of my favorite parts of the park. The paved drive is a blast, the scenery amazing, and overall a very unforgettable experience.

“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This narrow winding one way road offers spectacular views of the stark but colorful mountains of Death Valley. Jaw dropping beauty at every curve. A must see, especially if you're already stopping by Badwater and the Devils' Golf Course. Plenty of photo-ops so have your camera ready!

“The name says it all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

So if you aren't a painter, bring the camera, get out of the car and take home some unbelievable shots of the lower valley and surrounding hills with their spectacular colors.

“A pretty drive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

This was a nice drive but, being the driver your focus is on the road so I'm pretty sure I missed lots of pretty rock colours. What I did see were lots of twists and switchbacks and exciting dips. We didn't stop to take photos because its a narrow one way road. It doesn't detour far from Badwater road so it'll only delay you by 20 minutes maximum if you drive through continuously.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Does what it says - amazing colours and geology - different round each corner. We particularly enjoyed scrambling to the top of the little hill as the drive first starts and looking down towards Badwater and across the valley - brill
