Dante's View, Death Valley National Park

From a 1,669 m (5,476 ft) high terrace, Dante's View provides a panoramic view of the southern Death Valley basin. Look for the Devil's Golf Course--a field of complex mineral formations that looks like a large body of water from above. See the Owlshead Mountains, the Great Basin ranges, and the 3,367 m (11,047 ft) Telescope Peak. On a very clear day, you may even be rewarded with a sight of the highest and lowest points in the entire contiguous United States. Bear in mind that, because of the wind and elevation, you'll need warmer clothes than when visiting the valley.

  • Slightly sharp terrain on the way there but i went after some flash flood water swept away parts of the dirt road areas. Beautiful view at the top though!
  • Great view. A couple of short hikes along the ridge were fun. Definitely cooler up there than at the lower altitudes. Dress for the altitude/season!
