Trail Information

Highlights

Titus Canyon Road is a spectacular off-road trail within Death Valley National Park guaranteed to please. It is no wonder this one-way trail attracts thousands of globetrotting visitors each year. The 27-mile long road plunges visitors into fossil-rich canyons, over mile-high passes on rocky shelf roads, through a ghost town, along petroglyph-filled walls, and culminates in the grand finale. Titus Canyon Road shrinks to one vehicle-wide and takes the driver and passengers through a 1.5-mile twisty bobsled-like run through its Narrows before dumping everyone out into a wide vista of northern Death Valley. This gem of a trail is truly one of the most satisfying roads in southern California and is on par with many of the iconic trails in the United States.

Still closed. Seriously I wonder why I pay for an annual pass.
