“Your First Stop For Your Death Valley Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2015 NEW

A great first stop for a visit to Death Valley. You get amazing views and a great overview of the area. From the dramatic elevation changes, to the highly varied geology of the area you get a preview of all Death Valley has to offer from here. It was especially dramatic the day we visited as you could contrast the snow dusted Telescope Peak with the salt encrusted Badwater Flats directly under it. A definite must stop for anyone visiting Death Valley.

“This is a great overview point of just about everything in Death Valley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2015 NEW

Be prepared for a cooler temperature and a wind that comes up from the basin. The road out to the viewpoint is twisty and narrow at the last 1/4 mile but does not require a 4-wd. The wildflowers along this road were the best this week from anywhere in the park...not amazing but the best. You can see current mining operations far from the road on the way. Big parking lot and a couple of viewpoints you can hike to in order to avoid people in your camera lens.

“The one thing you MUST see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2015 NEW

Dante's view is the must see attraction in Death Valley. You really see the expanse of the park, and the peak is right about Badwater Basin, so you really feel on top of the world. Head over there for sunset, and the views are just amazing. :)

“Spectacular view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2015 NEW

A hard climb on our tandem but worth it! 6000 feet above the valley with snow covered mountains in the distance.
