Artists Drive is a 14.5 km scenic loop road in Death Valley National Park, California. It is a one-way road that starts at Badwater Road, 8.5 miles (13.7 km) south of the Badwater/CA-190 junction. The drive winds through hills carved by the erosive power of water, and gives vistas of both the rugged Black Mountains and swirling white salt flats.

The highlight of Artists Drive is the Artist’s Palette, a colorful group of rocks located at the end of the drive. The rocks are composed of different minerals that have been exposed to different weathering conditions, resulting in a variety of colors, including red, orange, yellow, green, and purple.

Along Artists Drive, there are a lot highlights for tourists. The Devil’s Golf Course is a field of sharp, salt-encrusted rocks that are too hard for even the toughest plants to grow on. The Zabriskie Point overlook offers panoramic views of the Death Valley basin. The Dante’s View overlook also offers even more panoramic views of the Death Valley basin, including Badwater Basin, the lowest point in North America.

Artists Drive is a popular spot for photographers, and it is best visited in the morning or evening when the light is soft. The beauty of Artists Drive is best appreciated in the afternoon, when the sun is low in the sky and the colors of the rocks are at their most vibrant. The drive is open year-round, but it is best to visit in the spring or fall when the weather is mild.
