This one-way gravel road in Death Valley National Park takes you over classic desert terrain, in addition to a few windy, steep up and downs as you climb up, and then back down to the valley floor. The view from Red Pass is something to...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

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.
