Zabriskie Point sits about 500-700 Ft off the valley floor and has great views. The trailhead leads down through the badlands into the canyons below (Golden Canyons). It was my favorite hike because of all the different colors of in the landscape. There are deep reds, bright golds & greens in this diverse landscape. It's a pretty easy hike down... More

There is a paved single lane path with a rather steep grade to the viewpoint. It's not far & you can see the top from the parking area. There are benches along the path to enjoy the view or take a break. The views are quite interesting & not to be missed if you are in Death Valley. They have... More

We patiently waited for 2 sunsets and a sunrise but just as the magic hour approached, the clouds moved in and flattened the light. Avoid January and February for better sun angles.

I went here after hiking Golden Canyon, so I didn't go down on the boulders, but some people did do this. You get a real sense of privacy even though you're exposed. You can walk about 1/2 mile (if that) up on a paved walkway. There are benches along the way if you need to rest and also look out... More

A fabulous location with fascinating views. This is a must see spot in the park. It's an easy, paved surface to the top of the site. We highly recommend it.

a light walk up to the beautiful vista. The bad land has layers of colors. You can also see a dried up river bed at the bottom. There are trails to hike down for a much closer look.

The low sun casts the cliffs in high relief and enhancing colors, making for some really dramatic photos.

It's more protected now so you can't walk on the dunes but there are lots of photo opportunities if you can take the heat. Like a lot of sites in Death Valley it's easy to get there by car.

Zabriskie Point has some of the most unusual and interesting rock formations I have ever seen. After Dante's View and Twenty Mule Team Canyon this was our third stop working our way round this amazing park in a day. I think the sign was only visible from Highway 190 if you're heading South but it's still easy to spot the... More

the loads of visitors detracted from the scenery as they kept jumping into our photos even though there was more than enough space for everyone I imagine it would be incredible to be there at night with only the night sky and silence.
