It's a short trip down a rather rough road, but the golf course (which has a golf club you can use for photos) is otherworldly. It's worth the drive just to see what it's like. Be careful on the rough terrain--it would be awful to...More

Not much time needed for that place. The view is the same in all directions from the car park. It's dangerous to walk on the rocks as they are sharp.

We didn't go the whole way to the end of the road in our rented vehicle because it was so bumpy and because we were short on time. We were glad to have gotten at least part way though, and we got out and took...More

This sight can easily be combined to a trip to the Badwater Basin as it is right next to it. Take a smaller sand road from Badwater rd to reach a small parking lot in the middle of the large salt pan. Around 15 minutes...More

Some of the oddest land you will ever see...mostly deserted, very few tourists..I was alone with the cracking rocks for 10-15 minutes....the sound of the rocks against total silence was special.

You would never guess what the golf course would look like if you don't drive and see for yourself. It's really hot of course, but an amazing stop. You're allowed to walk out on the area which makes it special as well. You can get...More

It was off the path of the main road, but it was only a short drive on a dirt road which can be done even in a sedan/coupe. Definitely recommend taking the ten minutes to go see it.
