A 42km long track in the middle of magnificent landscapes, with a ghost village on the way, and a great drive in a canyon at the end of the trip.

My experience, Explo description: 

The track (one-way, take it when coming from Beatty towards Death Valley), is away from any road. It will allow you to cross some valleys and canyons, and to enjoy wonderful sights. You will feel alone !

Just before entering the track end part in the middle of the Titus canyon, you will cross the vestiges of an ghost town (Leadfield). Leadfield was a mining boom town founded in 1926. The town died in... 1927...

At the end of the trip, the road winds in the bottom of the Titus canyon. It is possible to observe petroglyph there (ancient engravings, which origin is not unexplained).

My personal recommendations: 

Attention. The circuit of Titus canyon is a simple track. It is strongly advised to have a SUV to take it. Having said that, by dry weather, it is possible to make the circuit with a Sedan. Get information at the visitor centre to be certain before leaving, and to be sure that the road is not closed.

How getting there: 

Take the track on the road going from Beatty to Furnace creek (Hwy 374). The track starts on the right of the road, 5 miles from Beatty.

A tip to eat: 

No place to eat there. Closest restaurants : Furnace creek, Stovepipe or Beatty. Take food for a picnic : you will find many places to stop on the way !

A tip to sleep: 

Same as for the food : the closest places are at Furnace creek, Stovepipe wells village or Beatty.

  • >There is a camping at Furnace creek. There is also a motel (it is quite expensive, about $270 for a night, and full most of the time, but it is really worth sleeping there, because of its unique ambiance) : Furnace Creek Inn : 760 786 2345, from may to October.
  • >Motel. $100 per night. 760 786 2387.
  • >Else, you will find more accommodations (and casinos for amateurs) at Beatty.
