Ok, it's not as popular as other areas in Death Valley, but that's not just. We drove through (one way only!!! Entrance near Beatty) during late afternoon (3-5 pm) and found particularly the mountain road towards Titus Canyon exceptionally beautiful, with an enormous palette of different and bright colors. The total picture is just amazing. One piece of advice, along your way you'll find hundreds of abandoned mines, all sealed off. Don't get tempted by gaining access, as they contain dangerous snakes and giant spiders near the cool entrance. Also they appear to be very unstable and some even contain unexploded and unstable dynamite inside, according park rangers. I have found one forced entrance and reported it to the rangers, who had to call the Law as I had to file an official report (they take trespassing very seriously, and not without a reason).
The main mine entrance at the ghost town Leadfield, just prior to entering Titus Canyon, had a motion detection camera inside for observation of bats. Poor animals, I came a bit to close (within a few feet) to the entrance and woke them up.
Piece of advise, do this road with a high clearance vehicle and preferably 4x4.
