  • While the crater isn't located near the more popular spots in the park, the drive to get their is worth it! This crater is massive and you can't really appreciate how much until you see it in person.....  more

  • 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.
