  • This is a HUGE crater and it's hard to believe it was created by water pressure. The size and scope are truly amazing. 
  • This scene looks somewhat like the Haleakala Crater on Maui, but much smaller. It has that eerie feel to it. You can do a hike all the way around the rim of the main crater, with view to a couple of s...  more »

  • Absolutely Amazing ! ..... Stunning View. When you drive up to it - it suddenly appears - delivering a big surprise - how deep, expansive & beautiful it is. A definite 'Must See' if visiting Death Valley. The drive leading up to the crater is incredibly beautiful too.
  • Impressing place to see. Very beautiful views from this place too
  • Not so hard to get there. I had a good hike going down/up the crater.
  • A great place for a heart pounding hike around the rim of a Crater.
  • Ubehebe Crater is one of those places you have to see when you're in Death Valley. Who doesn't want to see a massive volcanic crater? It's hard to see the grand scale of the crater until you're actually there standing in front of it. You have the option to hike down to the bottom or hike around the rim. Whichever your choice, you won't be disappointed. Note, the hike to the bottom is steep and consists of loose rocks and gravel. So while it may be easy walking down the trail, going back up is a challenge. Bring water!
