“Don't miss this trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The winding dirt road has a scenic view at every turn. With little traffic, it is very enjoyable journey that let's you get up close and personal with the various rock formations.Any passenger car can make the loop, so don't worry. There are several pull outs if you want to take a hike. Recommended!

“Hiking through Star Wars set”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

This canyon can be reached by a short dirt road off the main highway, just a bit past Zabriskie Point. Park along the road and just wander through the mud / alkaline hills, explore the many advit mine entrances (many with warnings not to enter) and experience what it might be like to land on an alien planet. This is some of the best hiking in the park, quiet, lonely and easy to get lost in enjoyment.

“Cool drive!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Again another lovely little drive that sits off the main road. Nice to see all the different terrain and rocks in all these little canyons and you feel as though there is only you on the planet when it's quiet!

“Short Drive Good View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

This is a very short drive on an unpaved road, however, easy without high clearance. Nice views of the surrounding mountains and rocks. Looks like badlands.

“Like a Disneyland ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Fun short ride through the moon-like landscape. No problem for our low-slung sedan. Easy short drive, catch it on the way to Zabriskie Point and Dante's View.
