If you like the Zabriskie point formations, you'll like this too. It's a scenic drive, no problem for a standard auto. However the high point for us was walking around in it. Much of the road is single-car width only, but there are places where you can pull over and not block traffic. We didn't see any trails, but generally in Death Valley it's permissible to walk around almost anywhere. The rolling hills are fairly easy to walk and quite scenic. Just be careful to keep oriented -- want to be sure you can get back to your car.
