Amazing is a word that only begins to explain the beauty of this drive. The colors of the minerals in this diverse geography is as if it is a rainbow of mountains. If you make it to Death Valley do not miss this.

This short, one-way drive takes you through some very intriguing changes in the hills, washes and canyons, including color changes in the rocks and soils.

The drive is about 4 KM long but you will be driving for around 20 min due to the slower speed. There are a couple of places along the drive for you to park your car and take pictures, but there really is no need. The entire scenery is great and there really isn't 1 or 2 defining places. As...

No need to get out of the car. The scenery surrounds the car. The road is paved. Awesome views. Colors and cliffs are terrific.

The artistic drive gave us a unique and thrilling driving experience. We could enjoy the scenic views with different colours of mountain stones side-by-side. Had never seen such a scenic spot. A Must Visit Place.
