“Worth the Trip”
Review of Aguereberry Point

Aguereberry Point
Reviewed 5 March 2012

6 miles down an unpaved road. The road was a little rough and steep near the end. Our pickup made it ok, and we saw some sedans at the top. The view was worth the trip and we were alone virtually the entire time. You can see the Furnace Creek area 5000 feet below. Also some ruins and old mines on the way.

Beautiful view from the west side of Death Valley. I would combine this with a visit to the charcoal kilns. As good as view as Dantes!

We visited Aguereberry Point (6,433 feet) over the 2011 Thanksgiving weekend in our 2008 Subaru Forester. There is a great view of Badwater from the point. For a more expansive view which spans all the way to Furnace Creek, walk back toward the road and follow the short trail around the north side of the ridge.

Tip: Bring binoculars so you can check out the tiny cars in the valley. We took 12x50 binoculars which were very useful for the entire trip.

On our way back to the main road, we stopped to check out the Eureka Mine and Aguereberry Camp, both can be seen from the dirt road. You can drive up to the mine and it is a short walk to Aguereberry Camp. It does not add much time and both are worth the visit.

Following is information from the park service about the Aguereberry Point Road: High clearance 2-wheel drive. 6-mile graded gravel road off Emigrant Canyon Road. After the first 3 1/2 miles, the road enters a narrows and climbs moderately. The next one-mile section has loose rock and bedrock protruding from the road surface. Sedans risk undercarriage damage. Final ½ mile ascent to Aguereberry Point is steep and has occasional rocks. Subject to snow and mud conditions during wet periods. Watch out for other vehicles on blind curves. No Camping. Day use only.
