Short hike to amazing view of dunes, lakebed. Great for sunsets and sunrises. Surrounded by a maze of wildly eroded and vibrantly colored badlands, this spectacular view is one of the park's most famous. Zabriskie Point is a popular sunrise and sunset viewing location. The viewpoint is a short walk uphill from the parking area. Located east of Furnace Creek on Hwy 19.

Went here with my mom after we hiked out of the Grand Canyon! Easy walk up a hill to see some amazing views! Very hot-it was 125 degrees when we were here!

The view from Zabriskie Point is great, but the real fun is when you hike down into the badlands. It can be easy to get lost, but the terrain is pretty easy to walk on.

Such an awesome view. Very easy hike (small walk uphill on a paved trail) and it feels like nothing on the lungs because you are sea level. Definitely head here on your way to Zabriske's View.

For all of you who want a hike through what you see from Zabriskie Point, hike to or from Golden Canyon. Trail is well marked. I started at Golden Canyon, hiked to Zabriskie Point, and hiked back to my car via the Gower Gulch trail.

Drove from Vegas where it was 118 in the shade and tennis shoes were melting on the parking lot pavement, drove up and down to Dante's View and then came to Zabriskie Point in the late afternoon where it really felt like an oven at 123 degrees. We'd been here before in late afternoon several years ago with it 107 degrees. Took the short less than a quarter mile walk up to the viewing point, with the sun shining into our faces as we looked over the valley, lighting up the dunes behind us with a bright yellow glow. Still more of a walk than a hike, you still need water as your sweat evaporates. The view into the valley will be best in the morning light. This is one of the must stops in Death Valley when you visit.

Not much of a hike, more like a walk... but incredible view and a way to experience Death Valley... At Zabriskie Point, it was like an oven at 107F @5:30PM. We climbed to an overlook over sand dunes, crusty rock formations and a salt-crusted lakebed. Pretty desolate, but the dunes are striking and neat place for sunrise or sunsets.

A short, but interesting hike. Not especially strenuous, but great views. If you're a fan of the movie, that may make this a must-do. There are other, better hikes in Death Valley, but this was a "necessary" part of the overall Death Valley experience.
