“A great view of Death Valley and the salt flats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

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 better view.
The drive up is paved and pretty easy, the last 1/4 is a bit twisty and steep but nothing to worry about. Overall it took us about 1/2 hour to make the drive.

“Great views, but time of the day is important”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

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 is important - we had to go there twice, because first time we got there after sunrise at Zabriskiy point (like 1.5 hour after sunrise) and part of the Valley was in a shade, so we couldn't take good pictures, so we went there for the second time in the middle of the day and were able to see the whole valley.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

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.

“Worth the Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

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.
