Located on California's southeastern border with Nevada, Death Valley National Park is the largest national park in the continental United States and includes the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere. Encompassing nearly 3.4 million acres, it's a land of great mystery, beauty, and natural geological oddities, from the lunar landscape of Zabriskie Point and the dramatic colors of Marble Canyon to the heat-crackling stones at the Devils Golf Course and the shifting sands at Eureka, Panamint, and Death Valley Dunes. A FalconGuide® to Death Valley National Park directs you to thirty of the best drives and hikes in this immense and diverse area, showing you where to go and what to do to get the most out of your visit.
