If you start at the Artist's Palette parking area the first 5 miles is a beautiful descent into Badwater Basin which is more that 250ft below sea level and is known as the hottest place on the planet.  This year (2020) it reached 130 degrees fahrenheit!  Then you'll run approximately 3 miles along the iconic Badwater road, made famous by the Badwater 135 ultra.  Then the full ascent elevation is covered by the remainder of the route back to Artist's Palette.
