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

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

West Side Road allows you to drive right through the salt flats, it's a pretty cool experience. But please, STAY ON THE ROAD. Please be respectful of the natural beauty of the flats and don't be that guy and drive off the designated road.

The road transitions between sand and rock with a few washouts. While 4wd is recommended, it is not required. I would say high clearance is mandatory, and I recommend airing down your tires, going with a group, and bringing plenty of water. It was around 120 degrees when we went and we didn't see a single person out there, or a park ranger for that matter.

Air down those tires 'cause Harry Wade is a rough ride. It's not technical by any means and it switches between rocky and soft sand. We went during the summer and there were a few washouts but nothing too bad, but didn't see anyone else on the trail so please go as a group and bring lots of water. High clearance vehicles are highly recommended, and 4wd recommended but not necessarily mandatory.
