We were in Death Valley on a road trip and heard about this canyon. We went on a couple of hikes and this was one. It wasn’t my favorite in hindsight but it was still nice hike. It was just too hot so we had...More

A great hike through the canyon. Not as popular as some of the trails closer to the visitor center, but well worth the trip. (NOTE - the "road" up to the trail head is very rocky. You can go in a car but be careful...More

I hiked Fall Canyon solo in early October. It was absolutely wonderful - about 70-80 degrees depending on elevation, and I had the entire canyon to myself the whole time. if anyone is looking to enjoy a challenging hike with amazing views then this is...More

The original idea was to drive through Titus Canyon but on the advice of the Ranger we spoke with at the Furnace Creek Visitor Center we decide not to risk the tires on our rental car and instead put few miles on our hiking boots...More

You can make this hike easy or hard, your choice. Hard means around 3 miles where it ends (big rock in front of you closes your passage), you can choose to turn around to the trailhead/parking lot, or turn around and veer towards your left...More

At the mouth of the Titus Canyon drive, this hike awaits. As we didn't have the proper car, we didn't drive Titus Canyon. However, we did watch a few cars exit with some very satisfied occupants. We then began the hike to Fall Canyon. It...More

If you go at the right time of year, you will be rewarded not only with great scenery, but a multitude of diverse wildflowers. The hike isn't too strenuous (though you will gain about 1000 feet in elevation). The hike ends at a sheer wall...More

First, don't miss the Titus Canyon drive! And when you are done, Fall Canyon gets you out into what you just drove through. It is reasonably strenuous - but you can turn back as you need to ~ Bring lunch and plenty of water.

Lots of varied geology, spectacular high cliffs, lots of vegetation and wildflowers in March, some narrow sections, others more open. Tough hiking up mostly uncompacted gravel.

W had first hiked part of Titus Canyon, but had then turned back and decided to try Fall Canyon. That was awesome! You hike up the gravel bottom of the canyon, but there is quite some elevation gain, so you need basic fitness. You can...More
