“Better than Expected, A Nice Diversion”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Located only a few minutes from Furnace Creek, this detour proved to be exciting and offered some other-worldly views of the valley. My expectations were low as I pulled off the main road in my rental minivan, but the twisting turns, gravel surface, and roller coaster hills made this 5-10 minute drive a blast. I actually went through it a second time with a GoPro mounted to the hood. A lot of fun with high return on time invested.

“A fun little dirt side road”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Interesting rock formations and it only took a few minutes from the main highway . Portions of the road gave us the impression of a roller coaster .

“A fun, scenic drive”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Perfect for those who want off road experience but drove in with the family mini van and not the Jeep Rubicon. This is a very smooth, dirt road that winds through some some scenic (albeit monochrome) hills and valleys and takes only about 15 min to enjoy. Don't miss it if you're already up at Ziebriske Point.

“Easy road, Out of this world views”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Its really short, and any normal vehicle except RVs can drive it. It is dirty, rocky paved road, that kicks up dost, but doesn't have any rough patches. The view is amazing, its an alien landscape all around you! And there are a few stops, where you can pull off the road and go hiking for a better view. A lot of fun.

“Don't miss this trail”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

The winding dirt road has a scenic view at every turn. With little traffic, it is very enjoyable journey that let's you get up close and personal with the various rock formations.Any passenger car can make the loop, so don't worry. There are several pull outs if you want to take a hike. Recommended!
