Perhaps the most popular backroad in Death Valley National Park. Very scenic after the first 10 miles. A few buildings remain at the Leadfield Mine. Interesting geologic rock formations and a few petroglyphs. The road is one-way east to west. Street-legal vehicles only. A well-maintained gravel road but steep and narrow in a few places. Four-wheel drive seldom necessary under dry conditions. Road is closed when rain is expected due to extreme flash-flood danger through narrowest part of Titus Canyon. May also close with winter snows.

We found out that early Oct. is a great time to visit Death Valley! The park was near empty and the weather was gorgeous! Titus Canyon was beautiful, as always. We didn't run into another car or person the entire drive. The trail was pretty washboarded, but in good shape. Probably one of the best drives in Death Valley!
