“Stunning view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

This is well worth seeing in Death Valley, and is rivalled only by Padre Crowley's point for the spectacular view. Highly recommended!

“Awe inspiring view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

We were told by a park ranger to skip Badwater basin and see this instead. He was absolutely correct. The view was breathtaking.

“On top of the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

This viewpoint is at the top of the mountain, on a breathtaking lofty height above the valley, with Badwater and the salt flats laid out at your feet. This is one of the best - if not THE best - views of the valley. You can look far up and down the main valley and across at the range to the west, and it is simply breathtakingly stunning. This viewpoint is best in the morning with the sun still in your back. You can drive up – all paved – to the parking lot, but trailers and very long vehicles – such as those behemoth RVs – can’t negotiate the last part with the very steep and tight switchbacks. There’s a parking lot below the peak where trailers can be left.
There’s a good view from right there at the parking look at the top, but a trail to north and south leads to some great spots from which to see what feels like all of Death Valley. These extra miles off 190 east off the Zabriskie Point – Badwater – Furnace Creek Ranch intersection are well worth it – the reward is stupendous!

“Best view that has paved access”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

For those that have a sedan or a family car this is one of the best views you can get to. At the parking lot there are little use trails that go to the north and south of the parking lot, south is lower, north is higher.

“A.MA.ZING.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Dante's View is an overview of Death Valley. Don't miss it. It is way up high, so it is very COLD and WINDY! So dress accordingly (not just a winter coat, but a hat, scarf, gloves! Seriously!). You'll be miserable if you don't bundle up. The view is seriously amazing, and you can hike/walk quite a ways for more views if you are bundled up enough.
