Nice view of the valley floor and surrounding rock formations

This is a lower point the Danta's. Large parking area with steep walk. Can hike from this area. There were bathrooms facilities there. Very colorful rocks and hills there.

Zabrieskie point is spectacular. The views, particularly at sunrise and sunset are unbelieveable. to get the most of your experience, do the 3 mile hike down through golden canyon. We loved this place so much we came back for a second look.

Zabriskie Point sits about 500-700 Ft off the valley floor and has great views. The trailhead leads down through the badlands into the canyons below (Golden Canyons). It was my favorite hike because of all the different colors of in the landscape. There are deep reds, bright golds & greens in this diverse landscape. It's a pretty easy hike down... More

There is a paved single lane path with a rather steep grade to the viewpoint. It's not far & you can see the top from the parking area.

We patiently waited for 2 sunsets and a sunrise but just as the magic hour approached, the clouds moved in and flattened the light. Avoid January and February for better sun angles.

I went here after hiking Golden Canyon, so I didn't go down on the boulders, but some people did do this. You get a real sense of privacy even though you're exposed. You can walk about 1/2 mile (if that) up on a paved walkway. There are benches along the way if you need to rest and also look out... More

A fabulous location with fascinating views. This is a must see spot in the park. It's an easy, paved surface to the top of the site. We highly recommend it.

a light walk up to the beautiful vista. The bad land has layers of colors. You can also see a dried up river bed at the bottom. There are trails to hike down for a much closer look.

It's more protected now so you can't walk on the dunes but there are lots of photo opportunities if you can take the heat. Like a lot of sites in Death Valley it's easy to get there by car.
