Not a bad drive over a rough road, but what a view when you get there. Stop at Pete's place and check it out on how living was back then, they even go a 2 holer!

This is a bit of a drive that I would recommend using an all-wheel drive vehicle as the road up to the top is rather curvy. On a day when there are no winds, you can see across the entire valley. An amazing vista awaits...More

I went to this spot on a day I rented a 4x4 Jeep from Farabee's at Furnace Creek Death Valley, and WOW am I glad that I did. The view is absolutely amazing. The road is really washboard, but it isn't really bad until the...More

After spending an entire week in DV, this was not the most amazing view we saw but it was pretty good. The drive to the vantage point took less than an hour in our Jeep Wrangler (it would take much longer in a sedan but...More

The road is rough but the view is worth the drive. After 6 miles of a washboardy road that shakes your teeth loose at times you arrive at a parking area with a sign that indicates you are 6433 ft above the floor of Death...More

This was definitely the greatest place we visited whilst staying in Death Valley. The place and the views were stunning (and we are Norwegians and used to stunning views). The place is at close to 2000 m elevation and you see down to the salt...More

What an amazing view of Death Valley. High clearance vehicle is helpful but someone came up in a Toyota Camry while we were at the view point at the top. A couple of hairy narrow turns but mostly just washboard shaking for the 6 mile...More

Breathtaking views of death valley just under your feet. without a doubt - the best viewpoint in death valley. best time to visit - just before sunset. 4WD required.

As already noted, the drive is, shall we say, 'challenging'. The view, while nice, paled in comparison to the views from Zabriskie Point and Dante's View (and for the more adventuresome, Wildrose Peak). A visit to Eureka Mine is an excellent side trip if you're...More

Road in is 6 miles, at least 4 were bone-jarring washboard. But SO worth it to get to the views of practically the entire valley. You'll pass an old mine on your right, going in; stop and look around there on your way back out.

I know it's too late for you, but to other that have this question: yes, Aguereberry point is one of the few "off road" roads where you can take a normal sedan. it is a dirt road with gravel, but no large rocks or boulders... More
