Notes

Dante's Ridge is a great hike in Death Valley for the whole family. The one mile round trip to Dante's View follows the ridge north and ends with stunning views of Death Valley. The trail also provides some much needed refuge from the scorching heat the summer brings. For those that want a little more of an adventure; hikers can continue for another 3.5 miles cross-country to the summit of Mt. Perry. For the best photography opportunities hit the trail early and keep the sun at your back. There is camping available in Death Valley National Park.
