This narrow canyon cut deeply into the Grapevine Mountains is dominated by majestic cliffs and arched caverns. Titus Canyon is the longest and one of the grandest canyons in Death Valley. Titus Canyon Road was built in 1926 to serve the town of Leadville, an investor scam that became a ghost town the following year. This 26-mile one-way unpaved jeep road is regularly affected by seasonal floods. Driving the entire length of the canyon requires a four-wheel-drive high-clearance vehicle. If you don’t have one, the only way to visit majestic Titus Canyon is by foot. Titus Canyon is a slot canyon, immediately narrow at its mouth.
