End of the road rocky half-mile hike to sweeping views at Dante's View. The most breathtaking viewpoint in park, mountain-top overlook is 5000 ft above the inferno of Death Valley. From the parking lot, hike along the ridge either direction. Hike a half mile to the right from parking lot to first summit (Dante's View 5475 ft.) for spectacular vistas and cool place to escape summer heat. You can keep going to Mt. Perry which is 4 miles one way, but be careful of the heat.

Views for miles! The best way to see Death Valley is from above.

Fantastic views! It's about 5,000 feet up, and while the valley was 72 degrees, Dante's View was only 42. So bring jackets!
