Your rental car company likely wouldn't be too happy with anyone who braves this drive (and I darn sure wouldn't do it in my personal car) but if you are willing, the views are spectacular. Be sure and stop by Eureka Mine if you get up that way.

We made the drive up to Aguereberry Point on advice we received from a couple of Death Valley regulars who we met while hiking through Gower Gulch. They had been at Aguereberry Point just a day or two before and said that the road was in great shape and that they had the place to themselves, but most importantly the... More

Like most places in the park it is a drive to get there and pretty narrow in a couple places. Accessible to most vehicles but take your time. Once at the top you'll be glad you went. Views across, up and down the valley are amazing. Photographers will be delighted. Seeing Bad Water Basin from that location is breathtaking. No... More

We drove up to Aguereberry Point (not a 4 WD road, but close). We loved the view from the top & were very glad that we made the trip.

The view from the point is worth drive. It is one of the lesser visited attractions in Death Valley, at times you may the only one there enjoying the solitude and breathtaking views. The remains of the Eureka mine site is on the right about a third of the way to the point. It's worth the side trip. A lot... More

It's a bit of a drive to get there and the 6 miles drive once off road is a bit boring. The park keeps the roads well graded so with a high clearance vehicle, it was no problem - nothing compared to Titus. There is an unmarked fork at 2 miles - right takes you to Eureka Mine and left... More

Most of the drive is a good dirt road. There are a few spots that are narrow & you need to be more careful. Just before the end, the road is narrow with a big drop off. I would hate to meet an oncoming vehicle there and it is not for that those that are afraid of heights. Luckily I... More

It's a long and somewhat rough drive to get here, but it's soooo worth it. The view is spectacular. The road is rough in spots, but passable with a high-clearance vehicle. There is an unmarked fork about 2 miles in from Emigrant Canyon Rd. The road to the right is a short drive to Eureka Mine, which is an interesting... More

A six-mile graded dirt road delivers viewers to one of Death Valley's most spectacular vistas, with views down into the valley, over to distant peaks and up and down the length of Death Valley. Legendary miner Pete Aguereberry's favorite viewing spot. See his old homestead, just two-miles into the drive to Aguereberry Point. Stop and see Pete's old homestead and... More

while visiting the point we had another couple show up and they were from the same area of California that we were (small world). We made a day drive following the Emgranit trail from Stove Pipe to Ballarte. Saw the bee hives and had a beer with the old guy in Ballarte. Watch the jets fly really low and loud... More
