  • A fantastic place. Worth the drive! You feel like you're the only person on the planet.
  • Ubehebe Crater is definitely worth the drive to the northern end of the valley. - There is NO water💧, restrooms🚽, or cell service📶 (you'll have to drive 15-20 minutes before you get a signal). - You can venture down into the crater if you're willing to slide down the gravel path and then climb back out again 🥵. (Also, DO NOT try to climb out of the crater any other place other than the path, my friend tried and nearly died.) - You can take a walk around the rim of the crater and get a scenic view of the valley. - The parking lot and road are well paved, however all the trails are gravel.
