About Death Valley National Park

Known as the hottest and driest spot in North America, Death Valley National Park features a stunning, otherworldly landscape of dramatic extremes. Rugged canyons, snow-capped mountains, searing deserts, towering sand dunes and colorful badlands spread across nearly 3.4 million square acres of jaw-dropping natural vistas and unusual wildlife. Unmerciful heat and aridity predominates in the area, with what little rain there is falling mostly in the mountains. The park can be explored by automobile, motorcycle, bicycle or mountain bike or hiking.

Located east of the Sierra Nevada, Death Valley stretches across portions of California and Nevada between the Great Basin and Mojave deserts, encompassing some of the highest and lowest spots in the western hemisphere. The park's two major valleys are Panamint Valley and Death Valley. The saltwater flats of Badwater Basin sprawl across the lowest point in North America, while Dante's View towers over 5,000 feet above the valley's floor. A popular spot for viewing sunrise and sunset, Zabriskie Point's legendary vistas soar across the park's iconic badlands. The sand sculpted salt spires of Devil's Golf Course, 600-foot deep Ubehebe Crater and towering Mesquite Flat Dunes are other notable park highlights. Massive Titus Canyon encompasses a ghost town, volcanic deposits and Indian rock engravings, while Mosaic Canyon features unusual marbled walls.

Formed by volcanic activity, Death Valley was inhabited by Native American tribes from 7,000 BC, and most recently the Timbisha people. The late 19th and early 20th centuries saw an influx of gold and silver miners looking to make their fortune in the valley, spawning a spate of short-lived boom towns. However, the only mining that proved profitable in the area was borax. Tourism came to Death Valley with the building of resorts around Stovepipe Wells and Furnace Creek in the 1920s, and the area became a national park in 1994.
