A 27 mile one way road up into the mountains and down through the canyon, was very glad I was not driving the hairpin turns. Our tour guide Jerry did a great job !

I can't say enough about this drive. Definitely rent a Jeep before going through, as the ride can get bumpy. Pack a picnic and eat lunch on the hills before you hit the steep-walled canyon. Loved Titus Canyon!

This drive starts in a flat desert and ends in one of the most dramatic canyons you can imagine. It is not for the faint of heart or those afraid of heights. There are sheer drop offs right next to the road. The road is...More

Rather than taking a long drive to get through Titus Canyon, we opted to hike in from the west side. The first 1.5 miles of this hike is supposed to be the most outstanding part of the canyon and it did not disappoint. The trail...More

Very exciting and beautiful drive.You need high clearance more than 4 wheel drive. Well worth the drive. The Canyon is incredible. Pictures do not give it justice.

Titus Canyon was recommended by friends. It is a one-way drive starting outside the park, going over a ridge and down through the canyon which gets quite narrow at times; almost 30 miles. It is scenic and adventurous. Plan on over 3 hours because it...More

Be careful, it is a one way. From Beatty, easy to find, not that easy to drive sometimes but definitely worths it. As you can not drive fast, if you don’t stop anywhere, you can make it in around an hour and half. But you...More

The Visitor Center Ranger cautioned against taking a Subaru Forester on the Titus Canyon drive (due to clearance issues). Instead, the Ranger advised that we could enjoy the most spectacular narrow section by arriving at the Fall Canyon trail head (EARLY) and "walking in" the...More

I haven't seen them, so they probably aren't there all the time. Call the companies and ask for their schedules.
