“Breathtaking views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Loved this spot and could've spent all day sitting up there! You can drive right the way to the top and then if you like, you can also walk on some little tracks to get different vistas. Well worth it.

“Let your imagination soar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

After a slow winding drive with the last quarter mile a stomach churning adventure, you arrive at Dante's View high above Death Valley. You cannot but help feel sorry for the California gold rush Forty Niners as they trekked across the salt flats below. It is an amazing view and well worth the side trip off of the main road through Death Valley National Park.

“Las Vegas airport o Dantes View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Can a fellow tripper help us to identify the best route out of Las Vegas Airport to Dantes View in Death Valley please. We'll be picking up a hire car about 11am ish at the airport and overnighting at Furnace Creek Resort before travelling on to Yosemite. Can we "do" Dantes View and journey on to Furnace Creek with it being a "rush"?
Does anyone know the best route from Death Valley to Yosemite - we've been told to journey via Fresno but it seems way out - are there road closures in May which resulted in this advice?

“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.
