Ubehebe Peak is one of the few Death Valley peaks largely accessible by trail. The steep out-and-back hike leads to a remote peak in the southern Last Chance Range from which you will enjoy spectacular views of surrounding basin and range country. Before climbing Ubehebe Peak, a short 1-mile round-trip hike east to the Grandstand is a worthwhile warm-up and also provides a good perspective on your journey to the top of Ubehebe Peak. From the Grandstand a pre-climb visual orientation involves identifying Ubehebe Peak on the left with your route going up the east face of the north peak, then around the back side into the prominent notch, then left up the skyline to the summit.
