Not much more to see here aside from the bumpy terrain. Find yourself an isolated patch along the road, instead.

My wife originally thought this was a golf course based upon the name, but anyone who looked at pictures on line could quickly see that was not the case. In any event, that did not stop me from taking a golf club out of the...More

This is a short drive off the main road. There is a parking/turn around area that enables you to walk a short distance into the area.

As you are on the way to Badwater, it’s okay to have a visit. It has large salt crystals And “Only the devil could play golf" on its surface, due to a rough texture. Lol. It is about 1.3 miles from the road and accessible...More

Is this the most spectacular? Not sure, but for me it was the most impressive, seeing this "dug up land" with all the salt in all its vastness. Absolutely stunned by it

This craggy, alien surface is easy to get to from the main road and is probably on your way between major Death Valley sites anyway. It's easy to just pop in for a few pics and then get back on the road. There's nowhere to...More

This also was a dirt road to get to but worth it. I gave the kids a warning about safety, being careful and not goofing around. Yet two of our 7 kids managed to get pretty well skinned up!! The ground is hard, sharp and...More

A short drive down a good dirt road leads to this bizarre place. As far as you can see, there are lumps and bumps of salt crystals growing. Use caution if you walk out onto them as the footing is difficult. You don't have to...More
