  • Just before Badwater, a track of a hundred meters that overlooks concretions of salt ... interesting....

  • You can enjoy it from the last point where you can drive. When you walk a little, it is natural because it is the terrain that the salt is made of hardened, but be careful not to twist it because each one is lumpy and the foot is taken more than the imagination. There is no toilet here.

  • Awesome stop off on road to Bad Water basin, its unpaved an quite bumpy at times. Saw many sedans handle it well. Worth the 5 minute drive
  • One of the harshest landscapes in Death Valley. Can be accessed from many ways. We had taken a short 2 mile road with lots of gravel. It's a bumpy ride if you do not have proper vehicle. Can be covered in 20 min. If you are wondering how the name came, It was named after a line in the 1934 National Park Service guide book to Death Valley National Monument, which stated that "Only the devil could play golf" on its surface, due to a rough texture from the large halite salt crystal formations.
