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.

Nice, paved road up to a viewpoint. Beautiful views, but it feels like you're in an oven!

I read somewhere else of an alternative route for stunning photos... When you approach the trail to the lookout point, head to the right and climb up and along the ridge... Definitely more advanced and parts are hairy... but if you have footwork and nerves of steel, head on up! Be careful though, as there is a lot of loose rock here and steep on both sides at times... Trekking poles may prove useful for this alternative route.
