Artists Dr, Death Valley National Park

4.6
#1 of 9 in Outdoors in Death Valley National Park
See some of the most picturesque sights that Death Valley National Park has to offer on . The winding, 14.5 km (9 mi) long road takes you past impressive rock formations and the multicolored hillsides of the Artist's Palette. Volcanic activity and metal oxidation painted the hills in various shades of red, pink, yellow, green, and purple. The one-way road features safe places to pull off to admire the view, take pictures, or explore on foot. Even though the road is relatively short, the drive can take some time; its many curves may limit your speed, and many visitors prefer to drive slowly to take in the sights.

  • Well worth the drive. Winding narrow one way road. Might be a bit hair raising for larger suvs. Really neat rock formations. Ridges, gullies, boulders, cliffs.  more »
