As already noted, the drive is, shall we say, 'challenging'. The view, while nice, paled in comparison to the views from Zabriskie Point and Dante's View (and for the more adventuresome, Wildrose Peak). A visit to Eureka Mine is an excellent side trip if you're in that area and worth the short drive. But in our opinion, if you're planning... More

Road in is 6 miles, at least 4 were bone-jarring washboard. But SO worth it to get to the views of practically the entire valley. You'll pass an old mine on your right, going in; stop and look around there on your way back out.

The road in is good and plenty of parking. Not an easy climb the paths are good. The mines are easy to peer into and some hold old treasures of the era. The views at the top are beautiful. Our day was quite breeze but the sun warm.

Drove up in Yukon without 4 wheel drive in a light shower. Somewhat frightening around the peak but worth the time. No problem if you drive with caution and moderate the speed. Stop at the mine on the way up or down as this is also worth the time. Views at the peak are truly spectacular.

It is a 6 mile 4WD road to get to this point. Towards the end it becomes kind of dangerous to drive around he cliff. But, the viewpoint is totally worth all that. It is beautiful.

Getting here requires navigating a fairly rough dirt road. Don't attempt if you don't have decent clearance. A Subaru type vehicle will suffice. This is a good sunset site.

A long drive in on unpaved road, but our Forester managed it just fine. The last 1/4 mile is steep, narrow, and you see Death Valley 6000 feet below. The view at the top is amazing, and you will probably have it to yourself. We only saw one other vehicle on this road, people entering as we left.

This overlook is a bumpy trip to get to, but well worth the drive. You do need high clearance. At 6800 feet, the panoramic view is to the east. Wonderful spot for late afternoon pix.

Your rental car company likely wouldn't be too happy with anyone who braves this drive (and I darn sure wouldn't do it in my personal car) but if you are willing, the views are spectacular. Be sure and stop by Eureka Mine if you get up that way.
