All reviews scotty's castle big hole in the ground long drive death valley parking lot loose gravel the north end paved road furnace creek parking area bring water half mile great hike be careful great view stovepipe wells sand dunes
When you stand at the top and the wind just about knocks you over, it’s looks impossible to go to the bottom. But walk toward the left and you will see a path, that does just that. The fine kava peddles is a breeze to...More
We were hesitant to make the drive up to the crater, as we stayed in Stovepipe, but we could not be happier with our decision! We feel like we would have really missed out on the essence of Death Valley if we had skipped this...More
As of February 2019, the road to Ubehebe Crater is open, although the road to Scotty's Castle is closed. The crater is a wowzer, and just being able to say that you've been to Ubehebe (pronounced You-Be-He-Be) is gold.
Ubehebe Crater Crater is located near the northern part of Death Valley National Park. It's a bit far from Furnace Creek but well worth the trip.
The main crater is about a half mile wide and close to 700 feet deep. You can see the...More
The walk around the rim is not hard but the first part is uphill so poles are helpful. We started about one hour before sunset and the colors were beautiful. We stayed an hour after to enjoy the full sky of stars.
We stopped here for a few minutes on our way to Racetrack Playa. We only hiked up the hill to the right for a short distance. The views of the crater and the surrounding area are amazing. There is a trail around the rim of...More
We hiked up these two craters -- the Ubehebe and the Little Ubehebe. They were intriguing and the views were pretty cool! You have to be careful because the path is somewhat crumbly, but the views of the craters are worth it!
Ubehebe Crater is located in Death Valley at the north tip of the Cottonwood Mountains. The crater is half a mile wide and 500 to 777 feet deep. The crater was formed when magma migrated close to the surface and the heat of the magma...More

Hi, Thanks for the reply. I was planning to do this right before Christmas. I do have the flexibility of adding an extra day to make it 2 nights in the area but that might be it. I have not decided yet on lodging. I have seen multiple options mentioned here including the Furnace Creek resort and a Motel 6 in Beatty. Do you have any recommendations? I am open to staying in different places on different nights if that makes is easier to get to places

Looks good. For your first day, I presume you’re coming in from Pahrump. Be sure to take Bell Vista Road in Pahrump, NOT the major left turn marked for Hwy 372 and Death Valley. That will add some miles; go past it about 4 miles to Bell Vista, which becomes Stateline Road to Death Valley Junction. It is the Dante’s View Road that is currently closed, not Devil’s Golf Course. You can go up to Dante’s View (if it's open) even if you have not yet paid the park entrance fee, which you can...More
1.5 days in Death Valley - what to see? (2 Replies)
We'll be spending Sunday night in Beatty, Monday at Stovepipe Wells, and Tuesday in Bakersfield before driving back to San Francisco on Wednesday. Monday morning, we'll get an early start, visit Rhyolite and drive through Titus Canyon. I figure we'll be out of Titus Canyon by noon and I was thinking either Scotty's Castle and Ubehebe crater or heading down to Badwater or Dante's View for the afternoon. Tuesday we'll also have the morning to explore before heading out. Any...More

You can see both Scotty's Castle and Ubehebe Crater in the same afternoon. Go to the Castle first. The last tour is at 5:00 p.m. in the spring, and you don't want to just be in time for that one, in case they sell out. Then go to Ubehebe on the way down from the Castle. If you have most of Tuesday and you get up early, you could go to Dante's View, 20 Mule Team Canyon, and Zabriskie Point, which are all on 190 east of Furnace Creek. You'd still be able to go down Badwater Road because all...More
