"Ubehebe Crater" Death Valley National Park Off The Beaten Path Tip by goingsolo

  Death Valley National Park
by goingsolo

Ubehebe crater symbolizes the otherworldly nature of Death Valley's landscape. The crater, which is the product of a volcanic explosion, is located near Scotty's Castle. A trail leads around the steep and irregularly shaped crater and its a pretty tough walk.

Since its far from Death Valley's "main" attractions, Ubehebe Crater is not a sight you'll see on a brief park visit. But, if you have an extra day, you can easily drive out and combine a visit to the crater with a tour of Scotty's Castle.
