One of the most famous viewpoints in the park, which overlooks the golden colored badlands of the Furnace Creek formation. Visitors can simply enjoy the view or elect to start the hike from the point around Badlands Loop. Connector trails lead to Golden Canyon, Gower Gulch, and Red Cathedral. The point is most popular at sunrise and sunset and is a great place for photography.

Pets are not allowed on trails (including to Zabriskie Point), but may be walked on a leash in the parking lot. Do not leave pets unattended in vehicles, as cars can quickly become deadly hot for pets.
