Aguereberry Point is located just north of Telescope Peak on a mountain ridge between Death Valley and Panamint Valley. The access point to look for within the National Park is a few miles west of Stovepipe Wells and the signage for Wildrose is easy to spot. Emigrant Canyon Road and the roads to the Wildrose mining district are paved, while the condition of the dirt side roads vary greatly. The dirt road to Aguereberry Point is fairly smooth, but it is very narrow and there are vehicle length restrictions. Basically, the final ascending mile of Aguereberry Point Road is a one lane road with two way traffic, so it is best to stop at the beginning of this section to make sure the coast is clear before passing through. The same can be said about exiting the overlook in order to avoid awkward driving situations.
There is a small parking area up top at Aguereberry Point that many adventurists use as a daytime picnic gathering spot. The reason being is the panoramic views from this towering perch overlooking Death Valley way down below are so captivating, that it is difficult to leave it all behind. There are massive rock outcrops on this mountain top that are easy to climb, where complete 360 degree views can be found. Misty dust adds a mysterious effect to the distant views of the lowest valley in North America, while for those who rise early, this is the very best spot to experience a sunrise in Death Valley National Park. For these reasons, Aguereberry Point is well worth checking out, so be sure to log this intriguing overlook on the long list of Death Valley points of interest!

*This website will be going through renovations soon. Separate destination articles will be combined after the videos replace the outdated photo gallery system. As many readers know, most of the writing was done on the fly while camping, so many articles read like a rough draft. The articles will be cleaned up and edited. Many of the old photos were straight out of the camera due camping limitations as well, so you will finally see full living color images, just like in the new videos. Another goal is to make navigating the index pages easier and condensing the articles will help. This website will continue into the future and your patience is greatly appreciated!
