This is the best view of DVNP. The road is paved to get up there and is about 20-25 minutes one way. The view gives a nice overlook of the valley of DVNP. The view is high above Badwater. It is worth the windy drive.

This elevated view was one of the best view points in the park. It gives you a birds eye view of the large area. Worth the drive.

The road is steep and windy in places but once you get to the top the views are to die for. You can see for miles. Mountains , salt flats all different nothing looks the same and it all looks so different from up there.

If you are driving from Las Vegas, this makes a good first stop to see the expansiveness and topology of Death Valley before you drive into the valley. The viewpoint is easily accessible by car and you hardly need to walk after parking your car....More

I am a sucker for being in awe. It's hard not to be amazed by the views and the idea that people actually crossed the desert without AC.

Unbelievable view. Short easy walks either side of the car park you don't have to have hiking boots for either. The salt flats look like water and truly amazing to see.
