Zabriskie Point is easily accessed from the road and has a good sized car park and restroom facilities available. Although the path up the Point is necessarily steep, it is excellently paved and smooth. The views from the top reveal fascinating formations of rock that are quite unique; the geology is reminiscent of some sort of alien planet from the... More

Zabriskie Point is one of the first stops one encounters when entering the park from Furnace Creek. It's a steep walk up to the point and does provide some nice views. If arriving during a hot month with limited time however, is suggest saving your energy and passing up this feature until you've seen some of the other locations. As... More

I love Zabriskie point, it is just the most incredible rock structure all created when the original furnace creek lake was there. Since we last went it now has a good car park and a Tarmac path up to the top level viewing point. They national parks service have even put toilets in the car park and nice concrete square... More

Fantastic. Difficult to describe, it seems to be on another planet since it is so different to anything else i have seen on Earth. From the parking it's 2 minutes walking to reach the overview. Simply amazing.

We were in Vegas and got bored (crazy I know) so we drove out to Death Valley without really doing much research and came upon this place. It was breath taking and so crazy (and hot). It is something you really should just go and see once in your life. Nothing else in America compares.

Walking up the ramp the view becomes more and more beautiful. The rocks surrounding the lookout point just glowed in the morning sun. A must see in Death Valley!

A bit of an upward hike on a hot August day but well worth it. I never thought to go to Death Valley but so happy I did. An experience I will never forget.

Nice parking area and paved walkway onto the hill that gives you a perfect view on Zabriskie Point. Most beautiful moment is sunset in my opinion. Be sure to be there on time to catch the last golden rays.

We went to Zabriskie at 6am to watch the sun rise. The change of colors on the rocks is simply magic. Just be aware that you will not be alone, even at 6am...

what a beautiful and amazing view - it is small climb to the location; so take water with you - although the walk seems short ! - I returned at night for photographing the milky way - just do it ! - just to give you a feeling how dark - dark can be - especially at almost new moon... More
