Zabriskie Point & Red Cathedral
This desert lookout spot is not for the beginner hiker. There are stunning eroded cliffs, viewpoints overlooking Death Valley, and towering peaks looking at the Funeral mountains. One of the most popular spots is Red Cathedral, where you’ll see a canyon formed by flash floods. This portion of the trail requires minor scrambling. Additionally, it’s one of the most treacherous hikes in the world because of a precipitous cliff near the trail, on the left side. It gets extremely dangerous if you get close to the edge of the cliff, so don’t walk near the cliff and stay on the trail to be extra careful. It’s always better safe than sorry (Stavis Lost).
