This overlook is well worth the drive and short hike for the best overview of the valley and the Badwater Basin area. Just a short walk from the parking lot is an unmarked trailhead that you can take for a hike and we highly recommend
Hiking Dante’s View trail
Dante’s View Trail is a 1 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail, that offers the chance to see wildlife and is good for all skill levels. Sections of the trail will give you the thrill of walking on the edge of a mountain peak but the trail itself is well maintained.
