Death Valley is a special place, and Titus Canyon is one of the main reasons. 4wd isn't necessary but mid to high clearance is. Because it is a one-way road, the drive is quite relaxing even with its twists and turns and climbs and dips....More

Took a cool out-and-back hike through the canyon. During the dry season, you can actually enter death valley by driving through. It's an amazing canyon with high walls and nice shade. The canyon walls are about 10-20 feet apart. There's also some cool rock formations...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
