Great place to get salt flats pictures. It is a fairly steep walk up to the top. It was very hot so we were hustling to get to the top. Not a bad walk if you take your time.

Thought the point was great, but the drive - occasionally though small canyons - was surprisingly nice too. The road is in great condition. It is one way, narrow, and twisty at times, but a lot of fun and enjoyable.

It was 131 the day we did this 2-3 minute walk from the carpark to the top of Zabriske Point, it was hot, but so worth it to read the history and see the view. Been there, done that. ? Ticked that box.

Definitely a highlight and must-see in Death Valley. We went there on our last day on our way out of the park. Park in the parking lot and then walk up a short winding hilly road. At the top you are surprised by a stunning...More

A great overlook of Death Valley. Probably one of the prettiest places to get a cool, due to elevation, viewing of the valley. Worth the short drive to see.

This is the first main stop in Death Valley if your coming from Las Vegas and very busy! The views are great but the large amount of people kind of take away from the experience.

Many films have used this spot for various scenes. The Twilight Zone used the area, and Star Wars filmed nearby in Golden Canyon and Artists Drive. Kinda cool to find the same spots. Rock formations are fantastic to see. Hiking trails lead from the point...More

Even if you're just driving through Death Valley, you must, absolutely must, stop here for 15 minutes or so. My grown children and I thought it the most beautiful of all the sites we visited in the park. The colors and shapes of the mountainsides...More

My husband and I would like to visit Death Valley from 13 - 16th February, 2017. We will be driving a hired car (so no snow tyres and no chains allowed) Can the roads be snow covered? What areas of sight seeing are on cleared roads? We would love to see desert scenery with snow covered mountains. We are in our 70's and this is our only opportunity so any useful advice to make the most of our visit will be appreciated.

Usually the only snow you'll find in Death Valley area are on the high peaks. Therefore, most of Death Valley roads are accessible during winter months. You will see dessert scenery with snow covered mountains. I highly... More
