Ubehebe Crater Tours

This large volcanic crater in Death Valley National Park looks almost otherworldly. At half a mile wide and nearly 800 feet deep, the area is impressively large and can be hiked via three different trails. The crater is believed to have been formed 5,000-7,000 years ago from a large steam explosion created by pressure from hot liquid magma. Fields of cinder from the resulting explosion can still be seen in the area surrounding the crater.

A path to the edge of the crater’s rim allows those who hike up to peer down inside. The hike along the rim also leads to other older craters, including Little Hebe. The interior walls are colorfully striped by the many layers of different sedimentary rock and soil. For those who prefer not to hike, views of the crater’s exterior can still be seen from the parking area.

Practical Info

You can find Ubehebe Crater at the tip of the Cottonwood Mountains in Death Valley National Park, nearby to Scotty’s Castle. Be advised of heat and wind conditions before setting out on a hike.
