  • Another must do in Death Valley. 4WD not required but a truck or basic SUV would be advised over a standard passenger vehicle.

  • Great drive even if you don't have a 4x4. This is one drive I never get tired of and is a must do when traveling to DV

  • Definitely one of the highlights of my Death Valley trip.

  • My wife who started the drive saying "this is rough, way too much washboard" exited Titus Canyon saying "That was the most amazing drive I've ever taken". It is absolutely a must do and is a great easy intro to Death Valley dirt road driving. I will do that drive on every visit to the park.

  • An artfully driven sedan, especially a rental piloted by a German, can be driven down Titus when the road is in reasonable shape.

    Don't miss this DV spot!

  • Well, we finally did the trip through Titus. An amazing road and a great drive. And, there is lots to stop and see along the way. As others have said, a must do.

  • Don't let the first five or so miles of washboard scare you....The road gets much nicer as you enter the canyon proper.
