“The view is superb but dont feed wild animals people!”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

We arrived at Zabriske Point in the last moments of the sun setting - it was really a spectacular site and the silhouettes of people against the skyline as beautiful as the surrounding terrain. Returning to the parking lot, as I stood waiting for my husband to return, a small movement caught my eye. Out of a hole in the rocky ground appeared an exquisite, curious little fox, with very large ears. It stood and observed me, not a bit afraid of me, unnfortunately. Some people who had climbed into a car beside me lurched out of the doors of their car ... OH! quick lets feed it! I was less than polite in my explanation of why you shouldn't feed wild animals. I encouraged the fox to leave and it wandered off across the lot and down a hillside.

“Great overview of Death Valley”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

Wonderful views, trail heads and sunsets are all at Zabriskie Point. A great overlook point that gives you a real feeling for Death Valley. Go for the sunset if there are clouds in the sky.

“I haven't seen the movie”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

This is a beautiful part of the Death Valley National Park. It's just off the main road. Take a short walk and see some natural beauty.

“Amazing geology”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Easy paved uphill hike to overlook of unbelievable multicolored and textured rock strata. Located on main park hiway near east entrance to park. A must see. Morning or evening shadows and colors are best.

“Great place to watch the sunset”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Make sure you get here 30 minutes before 'official' sunset as it disappears below the range of hills in the background and you will miss it.
