Death Valley Scenic Byway

Department of Transportation.

A gateway to over 3.3 million acres of spectacular scenery, expansive vistas, rare desert wildlife, and historical and cultural sites; this byway travels through Death Valley National Park's sculpted hills and shifting sand dunes and even dips below sea level. Death Valley features the lowest point and the hottest place in North America.

Death Valley National Park requires an entrance fee.

Site passes can be purchased here.
