Really beautiful. I would have hiked just the last mile o2 two rather than renting a 4x4 jeep

If you rent a jeep, they tell you to start from Beatty because Titus Canyon is a one way road. However, only after driving through the road+canyon in a 4x4 did I realize that the... read more

If you rent a jeep, they tell you to start from Beatty because Titus Canyon is a one way road. However, only after driving through the road+canyon in a 4x4 did I realize that the junction from Scotty castle to the entrance of the canyon, which is the last maybe one mile of the road is a 2 ways road....

The first few miles of bumpy driving in our Jeep, we thought this was not going to be very enjoyable. Then we got into the Canyon!! Amazing views and even the kids were amazed!!! But the road is rough in a few places

High clearance, some sand, amazing place to explore, can walk up bottom mile or so, which is actually the tightest part of the canyon.

Titus Canyon is a deep, narrow gorge cut into the steep face of the Grapevine Mountains of the Mojave Desert, within Death Valley National Park in southeastern California and southwestern Nevada. The canyon features limestone rock formations, petroglyphs, and native plants and wildlife - Be aware that it is a 27 mile one way road. Do your research before you... More

Titus canyon is a fantastic off road drive through mountain pass and tight slot canyon. It is not very far in terms of miles but the trip takes hours to complete. The road is rough and steep with big drop offs throughout the pass. I did the drive in a Subaru outback with no issues. While 4x4 may not be... More

Titus Canyon can be visited from a one way unpaved road with high clearance recommended, and it should be required. The road was tough and despite having an All Wheel Drive, high clearance vehicle (Santa Fe), we took our time and there were some hairy spots on this road that went over a mountain pass. I heard bad reports of... More

We made the one-way trip through the canyon in a Jeep, and it was an exhilarating drive. Beautiful views and no one else in sight. You might not think it as the path starts out easy enough, but this really isn't a road for your standard car. Also, it is not a road to travel if there is any chance... More

Most spectacular part of our Death Valley visit. Went with Farabee Jeep Tour--just the two of us plus driver/guide. Fantastic!!! DO NOT DRIVE YOUR CAR unless it is 4 wheel with off road tires and high clearance. The road is treacherous over two passes, narrow through canyon walls and filled with ruts, holes and large rocks. But do go if... More

First and foremost, although this trip is for vehicles and I strongly suggest a 4x4 or vehicle with good ground clearance we had use of a Kia Sportage 4x4 which was adequate. I would recommend this only for drivers with a bit of experience (and a head for heights) as some of the terrain is challenging. Having said that, it... More
