“Breathtaking View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

Spent a hour on this overlook in what was honestly one of the coldest moments of my life…and it was already April…yet we couldn’t tear ourselves away. Worth the drive and short trail walk to get there. Take a camera and the heaviest jacket you own. We got there a sunset and were treated to a lovely scene.

“Awe Inspiring.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

I used to be stationed at nearby Fort Irwin. While there, I went to Death Valley several times and thought I had seen almost everything that Death Valley has to offer, but I had never driven up to Dante's View. What a mistake that was. After having taken the 13 mile drive from CA-190, I can honestly say that the view from Dante's View is one of the most photogenic of any National Park. I came to Death Valley to say that I had been to the lowest spot in North America, but the highlight of my visit was Dante's View. You should go too.

Vehicles over 25 feet and trailers are prohibited from the last couple of miles on the road and you should heed that warning. There are a few tight spots where you could easily become stuck. Ther is a spot where you can unhitch and park a trailer.

“Map and binoculars add value to the spectacular view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

About 40 min. from Furnace Creek Ranch up to 5.000 ft.+ for panoramic view of DV. Overlooks Badwater, lowest point in USA. Scenic and well-paved road, with turnouts and parking to leave trailers, which are prohibited higher up. Parking and short walking trails to vista points at summit. At the time I visited the wind was 30-40 mph, rocking parked vehicles back and forth. Also it was cool enough for a jacket while 90 degrees down at Badwater.

“Stunning view”

This is well worth seeing in Death Valley, and is rivalled only by Padre Crowley's point for the spectacular view. Highly recommended!

We were told by a park ranger to skip Badwater basin and see this instead. He was absolutely correct. The view was breathtaking.
