Titus Canyon Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Titus Canyon is one of the most popular dirt roads within Death Valley National Park, and justly so. The meandering dirt road travels down a narrow canyon, passing the ghost town of Leadfield and the Klare Spring petroglyphs. The trail can only be traveled from east to west, commencing southwest of Beatty in Nevada. The first few miles can be washboardy as the trail travels across the creosote- and sagebrush- covered flats toward the Amargosa Range. Entering Death Valley National Park, the trail first crosses the Von Schmidt Line, the original boundary between California and Nevada, and then the present-day state line into California. Neither is marked. Special Attractions: Leadfield ghost town; Petroglyphs at Klare Spring; Popular, easy trail within Death Valley National Park. High-clearance vehicles are preferred, but not necessary. This trail is dirt roads, but may have rocks, grades, water crossings, or ruts that make clearance a concern in a normal passenger vehicle. The trail is fairly wide, so that passing is possible at almost any point along the trail. Mud is not a concern under normal weather conditions."
