Perhaps the most memorable thing about this Death Valley canyon is the trip you'll take to it.

This is an interesting drive. It took us 4 hours but of course we stopped a hundred time to look at rocks and plants and just to take a break from driving. There are lots of interesting rocks. The terrain can be challenging. We stopped...More

We ventured into Titus Canyon in my Ford Explorer which does not have 4 wheel drive. We were told beforehand that two wheel drive is OK but you need a high clearance vehicle. As we ate at a restaurant and were talking to the waiter...More

This is a beautiful side trip through the mountains and ravines. The road is very rough and a high clearance 4WD is recommended. We rented a Jeep for this 3-4 hour trip.

A 27 mile one way road up into the mountains and down through the canyon, was very glad I was not driving the hairpin turns. Our tour guide Jerry did a great job !

I can't say enough about this drive. Definitely rent a Jeep before going through, as the ride can get bumpy. Pack a picnic and eat lunch on the hills before you hit the steep-walled canyon. Loved Titus Canyon!

This drive starts in a flat desert and ends in one of the most dramatic canyons you can imagine. It is not for the faint of heart or those afraid of heights. There are sheer drop offs right next to the road. The road is...More

Rather than taking a long drive to get through Titus Canyon, we opted to hike in from the west side. The first 1.5 miles of this hike is supposed to be the most outstanding part of the canyon and it did not disappoint. The trail...More

Very exciting and beautiful drive.You need high clearance more than 4 wheel drive. Well worth the drive. The Canyon is incredible. Pictures do not give it justice.

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.
