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.

We made the drive up to Aguereberry Point on advice we received from a couple of Death Valley regulars who we met while hiking through Gower Gulch. They had been at Aguereberry Point just a day or two before and said that the road was in great shape and that they had the place to themselves, but most importantly the... More

Like most places in the park it is a drive to get there and pretty narrow in a couple places. Accessible to most vehicles but take your time. Once at the top you'll be glad you went. Views across, up and down the valley are amazing. Photographers will be delighted. Seeing Bad Water Basin from that location is breathtaking. No... More

We drove up to Aguereberry Point (not a 4 WD road, but close). We loved the view from the top & were very glad that we made the trip.

The view from the point is worth drive. It is one of the lesser visited attractions in Death Valley, at times you may the only one there enjoying the solitude and breathtaking views. The remains of the Eureka mine site is on the right about a third of the way to the point. It's worth the side trip. A lot... More
