Rough road but worth it
Dec 2020
The 6 mile dirt road (off Wildrose Canyon) is washboard at first but gets better. I suggest a SUV but I saw a rental car make it. Make sure you stop and explore Eureka Mine just two miles in. The views from the top are better than Dante's on the opposite side of the valley. It's a long drive from Furnace Creek so I suggest combining it as a day trip with the Charcoal Kilms. The last quarter mile of driving is scary.

Great Vista Point!
Feb 2020
An easy drive takes you to Aguereberry Point though a high clearance vehicle is recommended. Take the trail to the north of the rock outcrop at the parking area for an even more expansive view.

Fantastic view
Jan 2020
Quite a drive from Stovepipe Wells, and a long section of dirt road. The view is spectacular. You'll probably have it to yourself.

The rough is rough and narrow in spots

a high clearance vehicle is needed to avoid some expensive damage, and if you have one you should go there. Great views along the way, a stop at an old mine area, and panoramic views at the top.

It's a very rough road to enter, I recommend 4x4. The way to the top is very scary and narrow. But oh what a view at the top!

Not a bad drive over a rough road, but what a view when you get there. Stop at Pete's place and check it out on how living was back then, they even go a 2 holer!

An amazing view of Death Valley
May 2018 • Family
This is a bit of a drive that I would recommend using an all-wheel drive vehicle as the road up to the top is rather curvy.
On a day when there are no winds, you can see across the entire valley. An amazing vista awaits you. There aren't a lot of hiking trails, but you can do a little climbing on some of the rocks to get your own unique POV of the area.

Amazing View - 4x4 vehicle recommended - Super Sunset Spot
Jan 2018 • Solo
I went to this spot on a day I rented a 4x4 Jeep from Farabee's at Furnace Creek Death Valley, and WOW am I glad that I did. The view is absolutely amazing.

The road is really washboard, but it isn't really bad until the last 1/4 mile, which is single car narrow and straight up and around a small pinnacle of earth. You can park at the bottom of that last bit of road and walk up, which is what a lot of regular larger cars did. But I was in a rental jeep, and went to the top, it was a great adventure!

You can see Eureka Mine on the way out to (or back from) the Point too, it's really interesting.

Typical DV viewpoint
Feb 2018 • Couples
After spending an entire week in DV, this was not the most amazing view we saw but it was pretty good. The drive to the vantage point took less than an hour in our Jeep Wrangler (it would take much longer in a sedan but is do-able). It's worth the short drive if you have time and it's not too far out of your way.

Awesome views of Death Valley
Feb 2018 • Couples
The road is rough but the view is worth the drive. After 6 miles of a washboardy road that shakes your teeth loose at times you arrive at a parking area with a sign that indicates you are 6433 ft above the floor of Death Valley. The views up and down the Valley are very nice and the pictures just don't capture the depth and breadth of the park. There are some sharp narrow curves on the road up that you just have to hope no one is coming the other way because there is absolutely no room to pass. We were lucky and didn't see many other cars on the up or down maybe because it was only 34 degrees at the top and kind of windy. There is a path that leads from the parking lot up an abandoned road that is under renovation. From this road you can get a view of an isolated miners camp with a couple of buildings far below. On the way down the mountain we stopped at the Eureka Mine and that was interesting to see how things were done and how people were living in the wilderness way back when. Definitely a place we are happy to have visited and once was enough on that road.
