Experience one of the most iconic views in California's Death Valley National Park from the overlook at Zabriskie Point. Located in the Amargosa Range on the east side of Death Valley, Zabriskie Point is surrounded by an otherworldly, maze-like landscape formed by the erosion of long-arid sediments in the Furnace Creek Lake area.
This view, often coveted on day trips to Death Valley from cities like Las Vegas, is best seen at sunrise or sunset when the sunlight paints beautiful colors across the crags and canyons of the badlands.
Zabriskie Point sits just off Hwy 190, and it’s easily accessible on foot from the nearby parking area. For visitors who wish to explore further, a hiking trail leads down the slope to Gower Gulch and beyond to Golden Canyon.
