I drove thru this road twice, each day of our two day visit to Death Valley. I had to do it twice because this was the best thing to do in Death Valley. It wasn't boring as driving to the "Racetrack" as views are simply amazing. My truck is 4x4 but I never needed to use it as the road... More

It was interesting and challenging worth the extra effort. It was though like travelling on kitty litter as there is no real road as such but gravel.

Here you are in the middle of Death Valley National Park and you decide to take a trip through Titus Canyon. Be ready to be amazed. As unbelievably beautiful Death Valley is - Titus Canyon is that and more. It is hard to realize you are still in Death Valley. Four-wheel drive vehicles are necessary and if you don't have... More

This was one of the coolest drives I've ever done in my life. The views were surreal and the old abandoned mining town was really neat. I would give yourself plenty of time...we took about 3 hrs and 15 mins but stopped a lot and walked around.

I made it through the canyon with a Toyota Camry in about 2 hours but I sure wouldn't recommend doing that. With that said we had a blast, it was the highlight of our stay in Death valley. The first half of the 26 mile trip is pretty good then all of a sudden Boom it's great with roller coaster... More

We had a small 4 wheel drive Jeep rental car and we still rented s Farrabee's Jeep for this. Our rental's tires weren't thick enough to handle the rocks and neither was the clearance. On top of that, Farrabees gives you a help box so if you do run into trouble, you press a call button and place it on... More

Wow, this road is amazing. You really need a 4wd car otherwise you can forget this. The scenery is so beautiful and the road was in some parts scary. But I'm glad I did this road. This was a drive with a lot of adrelin. Do not drive if you are not an experienced driver, for it is a one... More

We stumbled upon this drive while we were looking for ghost towns! What a great find! Not for the faint of heart as the twists and turns go super high and you are driving along sheer cliff drops in many places. But well worth it. The views are amazing and the scenery is like none other. Its not long -... More

This 26 mile drive took us roughly 2 hours. I did not adjust for this delay and had to cut out other viewpoints in the park due to our limited stay. Give your vehicle a break at the ghost town halfway through the pass. The road becomes fun once you begin driving in the washout. The drive twists and turns... More

Even though it is off road --no pavement most of the way it is a easy and not too rough trip unless there has been recent storms--down hill so regular road cars are OK . Plenty to see. Rock formations , ghost town buildings , old mine tailings and in the spring wild flowers. There are rock carvings too but... More
