HikingFeeGreat!

Unfortunately the colors got washed out by the morning sun, but it was still quite beautiful. I recommend going around late afternoon, that way you get the colors in full blast! Happy adventures!

WalkingFeeGreat!

Not far from Badwater Basin & definitely worth a stop. I was there close to sundown & it was very crowded. Many professional photographers trying to get the perfect sunset photo. The pastel blues, pinks, & oranges are magnificent in person.

Follow the trail at the lowest points and climb the hill next to the purple one to get the famous view online of the winding path through the colored hills

Beautiful, scenic drive. Try to go close to sundown, as the sunset really makes the colors pop.

Hike it. Get lost and find your way out. If you are a wannabe take photos and you are good. If you are real go hike every direction, day and night. It’s a different planet inside your own planet!

1/2021. It’s a nice overview but I think it’s better to go to the next stop on scenic drive where you can play on the hills. The overview was really cold and windy today which made it difficult to enjoy (the wind was actually pushing you).

HikingGreat!

Not much of a trail but just a walk to see rocks that resemble Neapolitan Ice-cream. Fun for a one time visit. *This is part of a scenic drive! Don't follow the crowd and stop at very first view point, nothing special, keep driving! Look for the SIGN for parking at Artist Pallet, about a mile drive in.

The first stop is actually not the Overlook. The 2nd stop is and looks better and fewer people. You should keep driving to the point that has a bathroom. Better view in there and fewer people too. That is the official site. The drive itself is really nice. Two or 3 short stops. Not much walking needed. Maybe the first point but it's very short.
