Owner description: A dramatic look-out point in Death Valley.
Reviewed November 30, 2012

It was easy to get the family up at 5:00 AM to be at Zabriskie Point for sunrise. There were lots of people there, waiting in the dark, and it was worth it. There's a paved path up to the viewing area, benches for resting and an easy climb down to the "roundy" rocks where people set up tripods. We chatted with people from all over, all giddy about seeing this beautiful sunrise on rock formations, backed by the Panamint Mountains.

Drive to the point is short from Furnace creek and is full of nice colored mountains on both sides. Parking was adequate and light around 8 am was good enough to get some nice pictures.

Take the hike listed on the board as it gives you a different perspective than from the viewing area. Just make sure it's not calling for rain and take water. Great hike.

You get a 360 panoramic view of the valley. The geology of the location is a sudden change and you will want to take time to observe the difference

Nice viewpoint in the central area of the park (Furnace Creek). It does have one of the few maintained trails linking to it. The viewpoint is easily accessed from the parking area, so there will be several other visitors at almost any time of day that you visit.
