Perhaps the most memorable thing about this Death Valley canyon is the trip you'll take to it.

Was taking a road trip through Death Valley. The drive from Las Vegas via Blue Diamond road was spectacular scenery. We were a little leary about going in June, but the weather was quite bearable. The park in a virtual smorgasbord of changing landscape, from...More

This is one of the most incredible drives I have ever done. I would highly recommend a high-clearance vehicle, like a pickup or an SUV, because it is a rocky drive. The drive takes about 1 1/2 hours, but it is completely worth it. The...More

We rented a jeep at Farabee's for this drive & glad we did. You can do it in a sedan or non-4 wheel drive car, but the higher clearance is worth the rental. I wouldn't want to take my car over this road as there...More

The title says it all. This must be the or one of the best drives I have ever done. Take it slow and easy and enjoy every inch and every vista. This is unbelievable.

OK, we didn't drive it because we approached from the wrong end (it's a one-way traffic system!) as a last-minute side trip on the way back from Racetrack Playa. But we did walk up it a couple of miles, during which we encountered cars coming...More

What an amazing ride on a gravel road through dessert flowers and narrow mountain passes and tight rocky canyons. Good to have a high clearance SUV. It's a one way road so no worries about oncoming traffic. So beautiful out in the middle of nowhere....More

Titus is nice, huge, it is just so good. Did it in a sedan, better bring a vehicle with higher clearance (if dry, 4WD is not needed). First 10 miles not funny, be patient and you will be rewarded. Total length will be 24 miles...More

First couple of miles are not that interesting and have the worst of the washboarding, but persevere because after that it just gets better and better. Allow yourself plenty of time to stop a see the many points of interest along the way. High clearance...More

Hi I am planning to drive Titus Canyon if I have time after driving round the DV attractions South of Furnace Creek. I see on Google Street view that Titus Canyon Rd is only open Eastbound from Scotty's Castle Rd for 3 miles so is the best way to enter Titus Canyon heading West from highway 374 near Beatty?

A numbert of the earlier answers are wrong! This dirt road is mostly a narrow one way twisting road, running from EAST to WEST, with its starting point at a small sign along Rte 374 (not far west of the Rhyolite ghost town... More
Is the sun in the eyes an issue in late afternoon, since it's a western direction? I haven't (yet) read anyone state that as an issue for them.

No, the sun should not be an issue. Take sunglasses, keep your windshield clean, and you should be fine.

Does the drive require that you be skilled and experienced using 4 wheel drive, or should the average driver be able to navigate the road in a 4wd vehicle?

I wouldn't necessarily want this to be my first narrow, steep dirt road drive. But, for most folks, it should be fine. Now, high ground clearance and AWD or 4WD are recommended by the park's rangers. When I was there, there... More
