  • Pretty cool place and super historic. Definitely recommend it. I was gonna hike the trail but it was 30 degrees. Rough road once pavement ends but i made it in a hatchback. Go check it out!

  • Great place to visit while you are in Death Valley. There is a lot of history in this area and the size and age of these Kilns are impressive. It’s off the beaten path with nice hikes in the area. It is worth the drive to go see

  • The road leading to Charcoal Kilns is a very rough 2 miles ride. Some sections of that are tough on sedans; although we did see people driving their sedans there. I'd suggest sticking with SUV class is you want to visit. Otherwise, it was a nice visit for our family.

  • This is a fantastic, relatively unknown location in Death Valley National Park. The climate here is much better than in Death Valley itself. The temperatures are very pleasant. The kilns are fascinating. This is a great stop for a picnic and strolling around the ruins. Great trip to take to get relief from the hotter temperatures in Death Valley. Highly recommend.

  • Hard to give these a rating... They are well-preserved and interesting to look at. But unless you're particularly interested in the historical or architectural aspects of the kilns, it's a long drive to see them. I spent about two minutes having a quick look at them on the way to the Telescope Peak hike trailhead at Mahogany Flat.
