Interesting geology visible from the car

This short, one-way drive takes you through some very intriguing changes in the hills, washes and canyons, including color changes in the rocks and soils.

The drive is about 4 KM long but you will be driving for around 20 min due to the slower speed. There are a couple of places along the drive for you to park your car and take pictures, but there really is no need. The entire scenery is great and there really isn't 1 or 2 defining places. As...

It's a small loop with beautifully multi-coloured rocks. It's a short drive and you don't need to go too far away from your car. Death Valley is a big park so make sure you include this part on your trip.

No need to get out of the car. The scenery surrounds the car. The road is paved. Awesome views. Colors and cliffs are terrific.

The artistic drive gave us a unique and thrilling driving experience. We could enjoy the scenic views with different colours of mountain stones side-by-side. Had never seen such a scenic spot. A Must Visit Place.

take the loop road off the main road and you will be well rewarded. The road heads into the mountains for a closer view of the astounding colours; around each corner is another surprise.

We were lucky to view this beautiful drive in different lights. As we entered the drive, it was raining and cloudy. The different rock colors at the artist palette were mesmerizing. As the showers stopped and the sky cleared, the sun rays gave it a very different feel. Highly highly recommend this place if you are visiting Death Valley.

Lots of places to park and take pictures. Guaranteed you won't see anything like this elsewhere. There are so many different variations at each corner. Beautiful colors

We were not expecting it to be quite so interesting. We pulled over a few times to take photos and hike around a canyon where several Star Wars episodes were filmed.
