Dante's View and Peak Professional Review and Guide
"This short, easy hike offers magnificent panoramic views of the highest and lowest points in the continental United States. Surrounded by some of the most dramatic and colorful relief found anywhere, you are nearly 6,000 feet directly above the lowest spot in the nation at Badwater.The unsigned trail to Dante’s Peak is clearly visible to the north as it climbs toward Dante’s Peak from the parking area. If possible, take this hike in the early morning with the sun at your back. This makes for better photography and for enhanced enjoyment of the superlative vistas and astounding 5,986-foot drop to the salt flats of Badwater, which sits 282 feet below sea level."
