Our first "off road" experience was the winding one-way gravel path through Titus Canyon. Midway through the canyon, we encountered the short-lived mining town of Leadville. Witnessing the canyon's geological diversity was a jaw-dropping experience. You do not want to get stuck in a location...More

I hate to say it, but it was barely worth the time and hassle. It's a long drive made longer by the first half. That first half seemed to have little you couldn't see elsewhere. As for the rest, if your concerned about your car,...More

Drove through Titus canyon last week in a Subaru. As all other reviews mention you do not want to do this in a sedan, hell next time I would just rent a Jeep. Although I was going 10-15mph this guy in a sedan passed me,...More

Amazing scenery. You have to take a jeep trip to see it. I was doubtful but Death Valley is amazing.The jeep trip is expensive but worth it.

This is a 1-way rough dirt/gravel Jeep trail that starts off slowly but then winds up into the mountains with stunning views and side hikes. We passed several old mines, some marked, some not. Exciting adrenaline, at times, drive. Towards the end, you drive through...More

We were told to try this drive, and we exchanged our rental car in LA to get an all-wheel drive so that we could do Titus Canyon. Really glad we did. Bumpy, must go slow. Beautiful rock formations, historic ghost town on the way. A...More

Beautiful drive - highly recommend it. Very few vehicles today, made for a more adventurous seeming trip to see nobody out there. After a long ride in, we climbed and climbed, then clambered down on hairpin turns. The road was pretty stable, but sheer drops...More

4 wheel drive preferred, but high clearance 2 wheel will do. Fantastic views. Ghost towns and Mountain Sheep. Allow about 2 - 3 hours to complete trip. Beautiful blooms in Spring.

I agree with the above. The tricky areas are narrow, and the road would be a challenge with a extra large SUV. However, there are Full Size 4X4 Trucks that go through there all the time (some with stock truck tires). If... More

I haven't seen them, so they probably aren't there all the time. Call the companies and ask for their schedules.
