  • Easy to get to and an amazing place. It's truly awe inspiring to be standing on the ground and looking at a sign 282 feet above your head on the cliffs that reads SEA LEVEL!

  • The actual lowest point in the US is a 3.5 mile hike to the center the salt encrusted playa to the west.  When I was there a few winters ago, nobody else was.

    Don't try the hike in the summer!

  • The bottom of Death Valley and the lowest spot in the US. No visit to Death Valley is complete without a stop here.
