    Death Valley National Park: Titus Canyon Professional Guide

    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "This is one of the classic 4WD (or two-foot!) canyon tours of the American West and should be near the top of your must-see list. Named after Morris Titus, a prospector who disappeared in this area in 1906, Titus Canyon offers fun driving (or hiking), beautiful scenery, and extraordinary geology. From Red Pass, the Titus Canyon Road drops a vertical mile, at times winding through passages hundreds of feet deep but barely wide enough for your vehicle. Check with Death Valley rangers before driving this route, as it’s often closed due to snow, mud, or flash floods. Do not enter the canyon if thunderstorms threaten. Vehicle: HC/4WD."

    "This short, steep hike from Titus Canyon leads to soaring views over the Amargosa Range and Death Valley. Thimble Peak is also near the boundary between Great Basin plant communities to the north and Mojave Desert plants to the south, so take note of the changing biodiversity on your hike. Because the road through Titus Canyon is one-way, east to west, it is necessary to drive the entire 26-miles in order to do this hike. Vehicle: HC/4WD." Read more
