It is great to travel to this portion of the park to see the crater, it offers something different and unique. The hike around the rim has great views and is worth the trip to see the diversity within the park. We did not hike...More

This attraction is located in less visited northern part of Death Valley NP. While driving up there last week we saw only a handful of tourist vehicles going in the opposite direction. I highly recommend visiting this crater. In a relatively flat area there is...More

The crater is easily accessible by car. Paved road with a large parking lot. You park right at the crater's edge. There is a trail around it if you are feeling adventurous. The day we were there the wind was so strong we didn't attempt...More

My wife and I had a very enjoyable walk around the crater. It is an easy walk and a fantastic way to see an unbelievable site. But so much of Death Valley fits that description.

The view into the crater is inspiring. The volcanic rock along the rim is slippery so be careful. The crater is a short walk from the parking lot, and you can walk up the hill to see the Little Hebe crater.

I wish we had more time and better weather once we got to the crater but a thunderstorm was upon us so it was a quick stop but definitely worth it!

Another fantastic spot in this amazing national park. We had a casual walk around the rim which held fantastic views and photo ops. Just a note: the winds were fierce,exacerbated by the topography. Helps with the heat but a bit challenging walking straight uphill into...More
